This building documents the peculiar typology of the villas in Viareggio and its framework is characterised by a considerable height which spans three floors

Viareggio

The original building plans, which have been conserved in the town archives, feature sketches of the ceramic decoration on the top floor and the blank window. The feature which styles the architectonic structure is its ceramic decoration. Below the eaves there are small cupids surrounded by detailed floral decoration.

The building is private property and cannot be visited inside.
