Restoring a Home in Italy: Twenty-Two Home Owners Realize Their Dream

by Simon McBride (Photographer), Elizabeth Helman-Minchilli, Elizabeth H. Minchilli

Three November titles from Artisan explore the pleasures of home and table at the most exalted levels. Elizabeth Minchilli provides both practical information (e.g., many local boards have imposed bans on new swimming pools) and reason to dream in the beautifully photographed Restoring a Home in Italy. The 22 featured residences include a compound of conical houses, called trulli, in Puglia, and a former candle factory in Rome, as well as plenty of traditional villas.
