A colorful volume about an extraordinary house and art collection dating from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.

Living Art tells the story of the collection of Paolo Zani (1945-2018), a renowned entrepreneur and a great art enthusiast. Over three decades, Zani collected over 800 works at his home in Italy (Cellatica in Brescia)--which was designed and remodeled over time in order to accommodate them--including paintings, sculptures, examples of applied art, and interior decor. Some of the outstanding masterpieces on display include works by Canaletto, Tiepolo, Guardi, Longhi, and Boucher, along with exquisite Baroque and Rococo furnishings, which are mainly of French and Venetian origin, and extraordinary art objects from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. These marvels are now being unveiled to the public at large thanks to this book and the opening of the House Museum. Zani's decision to establish the Fondazione Paolo e Carolina Zani and breathe life into this project is motivated by his desire to keep this great artistic heritage intact, as well as to remember his daughter Carolina (1990-2017).
