Chosen by Architectural Digest in 2011 as one of the 100 Best Interior Designers of All Time, Renzo Mongiardino (1916–1998) was an architect, theatrical designer, and interior designer who sought to resurrect the grandeur of antiquity in his residential and production designs. Raised in a Baroque palazzo, Mongiardino rejected minimalism and modernism in favor of opulent, atmospheric spaces with monumental architectural features borrowed from Ancient Greece and Rome, Byzantium, and Renaissance Europe. He collaborated with some of the most renowned theatrical and cinematic directors, including Gian Carlo Menotti, Peter Hall, and Franco Zeffirelli. Mongiardino was also one of the most sought-after interior designers of the jet society, creating luxurious classical interiors with grand operatic vision for clients including Marie-Hélène and Guy de Rothschild, Gianni Agnelli, Aristotle Onassis, Gianni Versace, Lee Radziwill, Jil Sander, Giancarlo Giammetti, and Valentino Garavani. Featuring personal forewords by Mongiardino’s granddaughter Francesca Simone, Roberto Peregalli and Laura Sartori Rimini, this lavishly illustrated volume showcases the sumptuous harmony of classicism expressed through meticulous study and exacting craftsmanship that defined the Mongiardino aesthetic. Specifications: Forewords by Francesca Simone, Roberto Peregalli, and Laura Sartori Rimini
