Ruthie Rogers and Renzo Piano Photo Millie Piano
After a year of separation, a beautiful afternoon with Renzo and Millie Piano in their home and studio high on the hills of Genoa overlooking the Mediterranean.
Over a long delicious lunch of zuppa di verdura, vitello tonnato, roasted Piemontese red and yellow peppers and, to finish, baci di dama, we spoke about life, friendship, architecture, family and memories.
A beautiful afternoon indeed.
