i could live here: art at the convent.
ciao, si from the french by design blog here. today, we’re visiting a 13th-century-old franciscan convent in brianza, lombardy region, italy, brilliantly renovated as an artist’s home and studio.
in this 13th century brianza franciscan convent, partially destroyed during WW2, lives architect and painter marco grassi. marco, who curated himself the renovation project, has kept most of the original internal structure such as the ceiling beams and part of the original brick walls. in marco’s gorgeous home, vintage, design, paintings and sculptures co-exist in harmony, giving the space a unique character.
