Renzo Mongiardino

Lorenzo Mongiardino, architect, theatrical designer, and interior designer, rejected minimalism and modernism in favour of opulent spaces with architectural features borrowed from ancient Greece and Rome to the Renaissance. Mongiardino brought his operatic vision to the residences of prestigious clientele including Baron de Rothschild, Aristotle Onassis, Lee Radziwill, and Valentino Garavani. This beautiful volume showcases the sumptuous harmony of classicism that defined the Mongiardino aesthetic. AUTHOR: Laure Verchere holds a degree in art history.
