The building, which spans three floors, has articulated façades which are characterised by different conformations and by the use of different materials such as ceramics for decoration and wrought iron for the balustrade railings.
The small villa exhibits rich decoration on the crowning attic fascia and on the skirt roof frieze, with small cupids and floral festoons alternated with amphorae.
The classically themed tiles are coupled with other stylised sailing boat motifs and geometrically finished borders, in accordance with an iconographic typology which is typical of Chini´s work: themes appertaining to classical tradition tend to be likened to the new style. The Renaissance figures are re-interpreted according to Modernist taste and are translated into a two-dimensional pictorial language.
The villa is private property and cannot be visited inside.
