vito nesta turns villa mozart’s marble veins and tiles into elegant wallpaper collection

vito nesta’s latest wallpaper collection features geometric motifs in muted colors that exude elegance and style. the ‘villa mozart wallpaper’, inspired by italian architect piero portaluppi’s villa mozart in milan, is part of the doppia firma project that brings european design innovation together with great artisanship.



nesta’s villa mozart wallpaper is handmade, painted by the artisans of san patrignano in the region of remini, italy. the patterns reference the opulent villa and dwell on its details and decoration that allude to the 1940s. the wallpaper’s graphics trace the villa’s marble veins, lines of wood and tiles found around the house.



some patterns feature the marble found around the villa’s fireplace and nesta proposes it new colorways that rethink the motif. another includes a scalloped pattern that comes in a light pink and green, or a darker blue and gold. although geometric and modern, they have the old-age flair and palettes of the famed milanese villa.



vito nesta is a designer, art director, interior decorator and artisan, who’s driven by his attraction to foreign culture, using his travels as a persistent form of inspiration. his creativity is expressed through projects of graphic and product design, interior decor, photography and painting.
