    Emiliano Salci

    Emiliano Salci

    Emiliano Salci is the co-founder of DIMORESTUDIO and DIMOREGALLERY, two societies he created with his partner Britt Moran, an American interior designer from Georgia. Salci was born in Arezzo, Tuscany. Both of their families manufactured furniture – but this has little to do with their talents. Salci and Moran met in 2003 and soon after they created DIMORESTUDIO in Milan. Emiliano Salci is an interior designer and architect, a furniture and antiques collector, and also an art enthusiast and a painting lover – he is especially fond of those classical paintings you can find in the area of Arezzo which is the birthplace of Piero della Francesca.
