In the approach of the tradeshow iSaloni in Milan, Italy, at the beginning of the month of April, we wanted to write an article about influential people of this beautiful country. So, today we are talking about Franca Sozzani, who were Vogue’s editor and we wanted to show you her inspirating house.
Franca Sozzani’s pied-à-terre reflects the late editrix’s lifelong passion for art and design.
The living room features an Alvar Aalto lounge chair, a mink-covered Sacco chair by Zanotta, and two vintage Marco Zanuso Sleep-O-Matic sofas placed back to back. An Andreas Gursky C-print hangs in the hallway. Styling by Ana Cardinale.
An Alvar Aalto chair sits in the entrance hall.
Woodcuts are grouped over a guest room mantel.
A portrait of Sozzani by Julian Schnabel overlooks a guest room. Vintage Venini glass vase.
In the master bedroom, 17th-century prints glow in gilded frames. Osvaldo Borsani desk; Medea chair by Vittorio Nobili.
In the studio, a photo by Peter Lindbergh hangs over a Tambour rolltop desk by George Nelson for Herman Miller.
A photograph from Shirin Neshat’s “Women of Allah” series hangs in the media room; the bookcase was designed by architect Massimiliano Locatelli, Sozzani’s longtime friend, who renovated the 19th-century townhouse.
The ball-gown-like shower curtain is made of black sailcloth.
Tall bookcases designed by Locatelli line a living room wall.
Neon lights by Osvaldo Borsani and Joseph Kosuth (on wall) illuminate the dining room. Vittorio Nobili chairs; Locatelli dining table.
