Its compact architectonic structure, which spans across two floors, has orderly façades which are characterised by the symmetrical layout of their openings and of the small terrace in the centre.
In the Twenties, in the wake of new Art Nouveau trends, Galileo Chini altered the building with some restyling work. The way the internal décor is arranged shows specific stylistic similarities to the decorative ornamentation of the façades. The facing of this small villa exhibits a heterogeneous ceramic repertoire. Little cupids with garlands and vine shoot leaves decorate the roof terrace, whereas the skirt roof fascia exhibits fantastical animals (seahorses) which highlight the small central terrace of the façades through their symmetrical arrangement.
The building is a private property and cannot be visited inside.
