The approach to architect Roberto Baciocchi’s home is unassuming. The house occupies a street corner in the medieval core of Arezzo, the Tuscan city of his birth, where a tight, meticulously preserved urban fabric surrounds the property and conceals even a hint at what is inside. At 71, Baciocchi has built his reputation on providing crisply modern, often monochrome interiors such as those he designed for Prada stores around the world. His home of 30 years, which he shares with his wife, Rosella, could not feel less minimal, however. Original in its use of space and layout, the 700-year-old Tuscan villa can seem labyrinthine; narrow stone staircases ascend a central tower, while concealed stairways descend into myriad chambers and antechambers.
