Willy’s vocation for design began in Rome, where he, then married to #elsamartinelli, wanted to settle. The actress was having her hair done in #piazzadispagna and, in less than an hour, he found an empty space in this highly sought-after neighbourhood.

Skilful, perfectionist, ingenious. With the help of local #craftsmen, the star photographer of @vogue, @parismatch_magazine or @marieclairemag decided to create his own décor and furniture. Chic, opulent.. The Rizzo style was born. Willy's playboy friends and all the jet-setters were crazy about his hyper-stylish, very amusing creations. The photographer's eye influences the designer. It is always a question of framing, a search for visual harmony, a desire to share joy, quality and pleasure.

Deauville is always a good idea✨

In August 1949, Willy Rizzo, armed with a 6x6, photographed Deauville with the ardor of his 21 years old and a sharp eye. His photos, taken five years after D-day, are the first published images of post-war Deauville. Willy Rizzo was then one of the most talented photographers of Paris Match, and he quickly became a legend thus a prince of photojournalism.

"I met Willy in Milan at a dinner hosted by @playboy Magazine. Since then, we have become great friends. In addition, Willy looks just like my father. We meet regularly, and we keep joking. I tease him all the time, I make fun about him and his ’paparazzi way’. In Willy's photos I like a certain French touch, especially in the artistic direction. I consider him as a huge photographer and I admire not only his work but also his career." Jack Nicholson

Willy Rizzo was one of the first photographers of "Paris Match". Having met him at that time, I shared my life, my career with this photographer who later became a wonderful friend and we shared the best moments of the 20th century together. Willy Rizzo was considered to be a unique photographer during that time, he captured all the renowned, unique and rare events that he still makes us relive today through his photographs. Having the opportunity to be an old friend of his, I want to pay him the homage he deserves. He has been through time but time has never affected the immensity of his talent.
