A master of light, a genius with details and materials, and a connoisseur of art, Ugo di Pace established his reputation as one of the leading architects and interior designers in Brazil with a stunning series of homes. In addition to designing breathtakingly elegant interiors, di Pace is a furniture designer, art and design collector, and a student of contemporary Brazilian culture. He has developed a unique Brazilian style, blending modern design and Brazilian materials with French, English, and Venetian elements. His career began in Italy and matured when he moved to Sï¿½o Paulo in 1951 to open an art and antiques gallery. Richly illustrated with new color photography, Ugo di Pace: Interiors brings this modern master and the distinctive design sensibility of Brazil to a wider audience and inspires all to infuse their homes with the style of Brazil.
Born in Naples, Ugo di Pace moved to Brazil in 1960 to launch a career in construction, architecture, and design. He has been widely published in Brazil and Italy, including Interiores (2001), a book of his interior design.
