Villa Fontana a Lucca

Villa Fontana in Lucca

The building has an articulated rectangular base and is constructed on two floors as well as a cellar and an attic


It has a hip roof covered with a layer of Marseillaise tiles. On the facades the fully framed openings are arranged with skilful regularity. The architraves, above which a concrete projecting cornice can be found, are adorned with polychrome majolica decorations which form floral motifs that can also be found below the window sills.
The two floors are defined by a skirt roof which runs along the whole façade.
At the centre of the north-facing main façade there is a balcony with a parapet which is made up of small columns covered with green majolica.
The façade is defined by angular fascias in imitation ashlar surmounted by fluted pilasters which run from the level of the skirt roof until the fascia below the eaves.
The building is a private property and cannot be visited inside.
