A few weeks ago while I was in Italy I was able to visit the homes of very talented artists in various parts of Italy and photograph their art and their homes. This quaint apartment in Rome is the home of a famous lamp designer, I don’t know how to beging to spell her name so I won’t. Above she (right) and Marella, the editor I was working with, are having a very authentic Italian conversation, hand gestures and all. She makes lamps out of everything from tissue paper flowers to glazed newspaper collages and has made her entire house a treat for the eyes, and the nose. The scent of fresh baked cherry pie and cappuccino was subtly present all afternoon.
