Count Raniero Gnoli calls home to a treasure trove apartment located in a Palazzo in the Lazio region. But one wouldn’t expect less from Gnoli. He is one of the world’s greatest authorities on Roman and Byzantine marble, a scholar of Tantric Buddhism, and for more than 40 years a professor of Indology at Sapienza Università di Roma. He recalls beauty as a prime necessity and this home is a complete reflection of it.
