is a city in constant motion, with a strong cultural
climate and a rich history. The historical city,
its labyrinth of canals and distinctive old canal
houses are famous throughout the world. In August
2010, the Amsterdam canal belt was even added to the UNESCO
World Heritage List!
Behind the facades
of Amsterdam, that ever lively and widely renowned
city, many surprises are hidden. The
city’s rich history and the creativity and
sharp commercial spirit of its multicultural inhabitants
are reflected in the diversity of its interiors. There are houses
that still display their past lives, unaltered,
as well as innovative and contemporary interiors that satisfy
the needs and demands of today, equipped with
the very latest devices.
This book treats
the reader to a glimpse of the stylish and artistically
decorated houses that Amsterdam is so rich in. The celebrated Italian photographer Massimo
Listri, known for his many interior books, and
author Melanie van Ogtrop joined forces to select forty
interiors of enthusiastic residents, artists,
collectors, and a few antiques dealers.
