Far away from the luxury Prada and Miu Miu stores he designed all around the world, architect Roberto Baciocchi lives in an ancient house acquired in 80’s, located in Arezzo, Italy.

Most walls and ceilings dating from 18th century have been preserved, sometimes with traditional process dating back to antiquity. No precise moda operandi or predefined style, only sentimental pieces stored by Baciocchi for thirty years like chests and chairs from Gio Ponti, iconic Terje Ekström’s blue armchair, 1980 French rugs and vintage velvet covered sofas.

Behind secret doors, an eclectic and colorful selection in line with his culture to pay homage to this historical building soul.
