Reviews

Here's another coffee table book that will satisfy your wanderlust, and maybe even trigger you to buy a plane ticket. Villa Balbiano is a 16th century architectural masterpiece located in Ossuccio on Lake Como. The historic Italian villa hosts world-class paintings, such as 17th century frescoes by the Recchi Brothers as well as Agostino Silva. Antique furnishings keep the original feel present in the interiors, though the property was recently renovated by French Designer Jacques Garcia. --Italian Bark
