From the Publisher. Studio Peregalli is the master of making interiors look brilliantly timeworn. Partners Laura Sartori Rimini and Roberto Peregalli have a distinctive ability to work in virtually every historical style—from Renaissance to Victorian—to create interiors that are atmospheric and magical, conjuring up a real or imagined past.The Invention of the Past profiles the firm’s domestic and public projects, including residences for such leading families as the Etros and the Zegnas. Organized by house elements—facades, libraries, dining rooms, bedrooms, and other spaces—the book focuses on their opulent and whimsical furnishings and old-world craftsmanship. Studio Peregalli juxtaposes authentic works of a particular period with replicated pieces to create an illusion that becomes something real and evocative. The book features lush color photographs of their oeuvre, along with reproductions of drawings, maquettes, and plaster models.
