La Dolce Vita: Living in Italy

by Catherine Fairweather

La Dolce Vita invites us into the homes of artists, writers, eccentrics, and noblemen – both native and expatriate – living in Italy: artist Sandro Chia’s austere monastery surrounded by vineyards in Tuscany, Gore Vidal’s cliffside retreat on the Amalfi Coast, and the farmhouse in Chianti which inspired the film Stealing Beauty. With 180 color photographs showing off the rich variety of styles across the regions of Italy, from seaside palazzo to Venetian townhouse, this book will inspire readers to bring the loveliness of Italy into their own homes.
