This lavish volume showcases the sumptuous harmony of classicism that defined the Mongiardino aesthetic.

If we needed any reminder of what an architectural and interior design genius Renzo Mongiardino was, this book meets that need. Its photographs are spectacular, shot from distances and angles that welcome the reader into the rooms themselves. A further strength is its chapter organization which highlights the late designer's mastery of historic styles and artifacts. Thus we have short chapters that focus on ancient Greece and Rome, neoclassicism, the 18th century, the Royal Pavilion at Brighton, renaissance Italy, Pompeii, and Topkapi and Byzantium. Longer chapters follow that celebrate Mongiardino's walls and interiors. All of these positives suggest that this ought to be the sina qua non of books on its subject, but some production values work against such a goal. A bolder typeface for the text would have made it easier to read, and the typeface for pages with collages of photos (usually featuring Mongiardino's clients) needed presentation in a far larger size. In sum, no book of this size and luxury should require the deployment of magnifying glasses.

Terrible.There is a photo of Baron de Redé's drawing room in the Hôtel Lambert, which was not done by Mongiardino, but by Georges Geoffroy! Mongiardino worked on the first floor of Hôtel Lambert for the Rothschilds, but never on the second floor for Baron de Redé - A terrible mistake - especially because it's one of the worlds most famous rooms and so easy to fact check. Who knows what other mistakes are here? Many photos are from Roomscapes, which wasn't a great book itself- Mongiardino was busy trying to be self- effacing and didn't cover whole projects, only a room here and a room there. This book doesn't make up for that- only part of the book is devoted to rooms, with the rest devoted to his inspirations. And not one residence is given more than a couple of pages. Don't bother with this.

Please ignore some of the previous snide comments regarding this book. I just bought a sealed copy and I can assure you there are no "upside down photographs", or smudged print. The book is flawless and an excellent value. The quality is as good as the recent Rizzoli title, "Ann Getty Interior Style", and this book is far more spectacular then Getty's. This book is full of breathtaking photography and interiors. A few of the photographs aren't ideally sharp, but I think it's because of the quality of the negatives - they are probably old. If you like opulent Italian interiors and admire Mongiardino's style, buy this before it goes out of print - you will have no regrets!

Quite lovely book.....needed way more photos of actually completed rooms not just concept drawings. Large format photos better than the previous book. Yes, page 65 is upside down but the photos are still clear and detailed. Lots of puffery but the work of such a genius stands on its own. A master of trompe l'oeil with a brilliant imagination (see the Roman apartment of Elsa Peretti).
A perfect understanding of how to hang paintings and design illusionistic floors.
Richness, symmetry, complexity: the next book on him needs no celebrity photos, just twice as many rooms and details

Renzo Mongiardino is an elusive figure that is difficult to understand, and unfortunately we do not get his full figure revealed with this book.

This was a highly anticipated book, made only more so by the publication delays. Finally, it has arrived and the printing quality is surprisingly sloppy (smudges on pages and one image clearly presented upside down!)...perhaps the text makes up for these oversights, but the original Mongiardino book, with the master's own insights, is still the benchmark.

The interiors are just WOW!
I bought this second book about Mr. Mongiardino because I had the pleasure to meet him when living with my uncles in Tivoli - Rome -1967 /1968 , being at the time , their home already decorated by Mr. Mongiardino.
Them, lately for 7 years we lived in Genoa / Nervi in the triplex penthouse of the palazzo Cattaneo della Volta .( 1505 )
My old, dear friend and landlady, the marquise Cattaneo, who lived all her life in the ground and first floor.of her palace years ago had it re-decorated by her close friend Mr. Mongiardino, who superbly decorated her home with the marvelous art works furniture and furnishings of the family.
He was , on my opinion, the best Italian decorator ever existed - for high end houses and palaces .
This book , a repetition of the better previous one, is expensive for it's low quality paper, cheap unfocused and opaque printing,
.......What a pity !
