This month’s book is “Home Sweet Home” (Rizzoli) by worldwide famous photographer Oberto Gili.
His house is in New York since the Eighties but his “home” is still in Piedmont, Italy, where he was born and where he constantly returns. Here he has cows, acres of land he loves to work on, vegetable gardens, grape vines and most important his four beloved dogs.
In this town he lives a totally different lifestyle from the one in New York or when he travels around the world, in touch with celebrities and going to parties in the most elegant houses.
Here he completely restored a dilapidated farm house near his family home, leaving wood beams, old cotto floors, creating a charming and cozy atmosphere of yesteryears.
Furniture and accessories are all part of his life, he says that every object has some happy memory and of course the walls are decorated with his photography and many pieces of artists friends.

A small room in the guesthouse with different styles put together in an harmonious way.
Old charming French doors opening to the luxurious garden.
A real “Home Sweet Home” where life can be happy and easy and where the artist can recharge and create while away from his intense life in New York.
