Raised in a Baroque palazzo, Renzo Mongiardino rejected minimalism and modernism in favor of opulent, atmospheric spaces with monumental architectural features borrowed from Ancient Greece and Rome, Byzantium, and Renaissance Europe. He collaborated with some of the most renowned theatrical and cinematic directors, including Gian Carlo Menotti, Peter Hall, and Franco Zeffirelli. Mongiardino was also one of the most sought-after interior designers of the jet society, creating luxurious classical interiors with a grand operatic vision for clients including Marie-Hélène and Guy de Rothschild, Gianni Agnelli, Aristotle Onassis, Gianni Versace, Lee Radziwill, Jil Sander, Giancarlo Giammetti, and Valentino Garavani. This lavishly illustrated volume showcases the sumptuous harmony of classicism expressed through meticulous study and exacting craftsmanship that defined the Mongiardino aesthetic.
