Ruben Modigliani



Milanese by adoption for thirty-three years now, Modigliani continues to be extremely proud of having being born and raised in Florence. He inherited his passion for architecture and design from his parents, who when he was a kid took him to visit sensational places and locations around Italy and Europe. After completing classical studies, his first (much-loved) job was as a graphic designer. His passion for print media took him to work at the editorial offices of “L’Uomo Vogue”, “D la Repubblica delle Donne”, “Elle Decor Italia”, and “AD”, where he naturally moved on to writing. His passions are posters (he has a small collection); connections between ideas, however distant they may be in space or history; discovering new cities and returning to the many cities he loves. He would love to live in Philip Johnson’s Glass House, with an extra basement storage room full of furniture, books, and objects for display on rotation. Or at Josef Hoffmann’s masterpiece, Palais Stoclet, in Brussels.
