Costa Smeralda | Exploring Sardinia with a New Title from Assouline

Written by

At a time when anyone and everyone is desperate to be languishing by a pristine sea, surrounded by historical beauty and stylish friends, luxury publisher Assouline is releasing its newest Classics Collection, the stunning Costa Smeralda. The coffee table hardback celebrates the 60th anniversary since the secluded island’s founding in 1962.

Located in Sardinia, Italy, Costa Smeralda, also known as the Emerald Coast, is comprised of the Marina of Porto Cervo, the Yacht Club, the Promenade and Pevero Golf Club, and includes luxurious digs, such as the Hotel Romazzino and Hotel Cala di Volpe.

Just like Costa Smeralda, Assouline’s newest book transports its readers to another world—dreamy, surreal, and frozen in time. Since its founding by Prince Karim Aga Khan, the luxurious escape has hosted all-star guests including Ringo Starr, Naomi Campbell, Elton John, and Roberto and Eva Cavalli, and many more.

To complement the book’s breathtaking imagery of the coast’s natural abundance, ornate architecture, and picturesque streets of shopping and dining, the book includes writing from writer, lecturer, curator and journalist Cesare Cunaccia, a former editor at large for Vogue Italia and L’Uomo Vogue, as well as the antiques consultant for Architectural Digest Italy. He is also the best-selling author of Capri Dolce Vita and Tuscany Marvel.
