“Ever since the end of the Second World War, Italian style, design and decoration have maintained an unprecedented predominance in the Western World. It was in the early 1950s that a great surge of decorative talent welled up in Italy, and this resulted in the ‘Italian look’ in clothes and in homes – a new standard of chic inventiveness.

The Italian view of interior design has been most enterprisingly expressed in the magazine Casa Vogue, which was founded in 1968 and has consistently been one of the most admired publications of Condé Nast International.

This book, garnered from the many issues of Casa Vogue, has been written and produced under the guidance of  Isa Vercellonim who has been its editor ever since its inception. The choice of picture-stories is intended to reflect the unusual and distinctive diversity of the magazine – ranging from traditional decoration to the more advance examples of minimal design, most the most significant  of contemporary buildings to the spectacular reconstructions and reconversions of old palazzi and coachhouses, from the ‘post modern’ to the ‘anti-modern’ and any other ‘moderns’ that may have been advocated recently. Italian trends naturally provide the main focus, but Casa Vogue also includes developments in the United States, France, Switzerland – indeed, wherever unusual and meaningful designs are being created.”
