In His Own Words: The Count Manfredi della Gherardesca

In His Own Words: The Count Manfredi della Gherardesca

In His Own Words: The Count Manfredi della Gherardesca

Interior decorator, art collector, arbiter of style... Count Manfredi della Gherardesca was one of the most culturally erudite figures of his generation.  

In June 2021, a year before he passed away, we were privileged to be welcomed by Manfredi to his London home to glean insights - in his own words - into the influences and philosophies that have contributed to this Maestro of Eclecticism's inimitably instinctive, and much sought-after, interior design style.  

Sharing glimpses into his evolution from matchbox-collecting schoolboy in 1960's Florence, to becoming an international art dealer for some of the greatest collections and collectors in the world, this film - for just a few moments - will remind those who ever spent a meaningful moment with Manfredi just a little of the magic that led him to become one of the most admired and adored figures in the London and international art and design scenes.
