'Antiques in Italian Interiors, Volume II' presents a selection of magnificent Italian interiors. Following the success of the previous volume in the series (published by Verba Volant in 2005), this new book will open the doors to more private residences belonging to aristocrats and collectors.

The interiors selected by art historian Roberto Valeriani and architectural photographer Mario Ciampi are located throughout the Italian peninsula. In Rome the Galleria Colonna, with its opulent halls and parlors, contains a celebrated art collection that belongs to a prestigious Roman family. Embellished with frescoes dating to the seventeenth century, the princely baroque spaces boast masterpieces from the fifteenth to the eighteenth century.

The book passes from the affluence of the papal Rome to the opulence of Catania where Palazzo Gangi, one of the oldest baroque palaces in Sicily, was the settings for Luchino Visconti's Il Gattopardo. The rich style and ambience of the collection of interiors in this volume demonstrates the full power of the elegance that can only be achieved by arranging precious artwork and antiques in stunning spaces with classic Italian style.
