Inside the Mind (and Mansion) of Giorgio Armani

The Italian icon sees the world like no one else, and his countryside estate offers insight into that vision.

The New York Times recently visited Giorgio Armani’s palatial, and otherworldly, Italian villa in Broni, tucked within the Italian countryside about 90 minutes from Milan.

Complete with glided arches, towering artworks and exotic animals, Armani uses the retreat — and eight other homes and estates spread across Europe and the U.S. — to stay inspired and to keep an arm’s length from most hotels, which he finds ill-designed and gaudy.

Take a look here at the Broni villa, and learn a little more about the man who has shaped fashion and popular culture for decades with minimalist design and a perfectionist’s vision.
