Reshaped by the milanese duo Ludovica + Roberto Palomba, inspired by the idea of absence, stripped back as much as possible while restoring historical features such as ornate frescoes and mosaic flooring to create the space for a contemporary art collection all around the property. Monastic décor and bare walls boost the 19th century frescoes ceilings with cracks. Each room has a different artwork. Ancient family portraits alternate with works of contemporary art.
The 19th century history, architecture and art are fused to serve the needs of the latter in order to stimulate the creation of art and installations that have become intrinsic parts of the house.
Artworks and minimalist designed furnitures are combined in all rooms. Art pieces become functional such as the light box of Simon D’Exea illuminating most of the rooms or the rain shower installation in a bathroom where the shower is replaced by an archaic source of water falling from a 6 meter high ceiling in a large basin designed by Andrea Sala.
