In the 1920's all the rooms of this home and an adjoining one were painted in an art-deco style. The wall and ceilings are all adorned with magnificent patterns that are instantly recognizable as being from that era.
Sadly, the major earthquake of 1997 that hit central Italy cause major damage to these homes. Peggy saw this house back in 2003 on a previous visit to Malvarina and was saddened to see this great home in its damaged state.
Although the Italian government moves very slowly, it does move and the houses have now been almost completely restored. It is again a marvel!
|One of my favorites was the room with the sunflower theme. |
The detail is so striking.
|Another room has equally detailed paintings on the wall and ceiling.|
|The entry way to the house.|
|The adjoining house has many similarly beautiful|
rooms - here is just one.
The rooms in these homes are real masterpieces and it was nice to see them restored to their original luster. We felt very lucky to get a peek at these beautiful homes.
