Nestling in the gentle hills and brushed with the hazy sfumato of the air, the homes of Tuscany have long been the objects of lust and legend. This large, lushly photographed book affords a privileged glimpse of Tuscan houses and interiors. Leading lights of the international arts and fashion scenes open their doors and bid us enter. The range extends from the simple casa colonia and the typical farmhouse of Chianti, through the majestic palazzo of the Puccis and the magnificent villa of the Siemens family, to a house designed by Ettore Sottsass. This edition has been issued in honor of Taschen's 25th anniversary. Hardbound, color.
