THE HOUSE OF A LIFETIME: A COLLECTOR’S JOURNEY IN TANGIER
Author Umberto Pasti and Ngoc Minh Ngo
Foreword by Madison Cox (Rizzoli)
Something about the Moroccan city of Tangier that continues to inspire artists and writers. Here, the noted Italian writer and horticulturalist, Umberto Pasti, opens the actual door to his own villa in the city, filled as it is with Moroccan artworks and objects, as well as furnishings, textiles, rare tiles, and ceramics that would qualify to make his home into a private museum, should he ever wish to do so. Readers: You’re welcomed inside. Pay attention to what you’re seeing. While his home reflects a lifetime of having collected, it’s clear that he’s hasn’t stopped. The endeavor continues.
