"The houses here stand in an exceptional landscape setting that we decided to preserve" says Mauro Bissattini, born in Cannobbio in 1951, an architect with the personality of an artist and boundless professional verve. His uncle Gigi Vietti, a native of the Val Cannobina on Lake Maggiore, was Prince Ali Aga Khan's town planner on the Costa Smeralda and an architect in Cortina d'Ampezzo. Mauro Bissattini is not only Vietti's nephew, he is also his spiritual heir: in his architectural work, he takes the greatest of care to interpret the spirit of place, architectural details and interiors. Never to be taken for granted, these are intelligent, colourful and vigorously personal. His working style sets out to interpret and preserve different types of habitat, from the Art Nouveau villas to the mediaeval Alpine towers that abound in this region. Yet this architect also uses state-of-the-art technologies, keeping them concealed and creating truly beautiful homes. Browse this book to see splendid photographs that illustrate houses basking in the mellifluous atmosphere of the lake, with exuberant interiors as a source of inspiration, ideas and suggestions for a very special style to discover and recreate for yourself. Mauro Bissattini and his staff of craftsmen function together more like a Renaissance art workshop than a modern architectural office.
