19/December/2017

The Villa is dating back to XVII century and it has been built by a noble Politian family who use as a country estate as a farm. As always happen step by step they sold part of the land and the houses around the villa, which actually has 6 hectare.
The Italian formal garden was planted by the noble Polician family, as a testimony of that there the century cypress trees that surround the villa.The garden has been subsequently revisited and modeled over the years, but maintains its characteristic of Italian garden with geometric figures made with box hedges, small roses and ornamental plants.

A strong impact on the villa and the garden dates back to the period between 1920 and 1940, with the so-called period of “Rationalism”, ie an architectural current that developed in Italy in the twenties and thirties of the twentieth century in connection with the Modern International Movement, following the principles of functionalism, continuing in various ways in fringes up to the Seventies.

The passage from the XIX century to the XX century was experienced throughout the western world as an epoch-making change. The renovation was evident in all technical and economic sectors and was also reflected in architecture, where the availability of new technologies applied to the materials allowed buildings that were unthinkable a few decades earlier. Instead of continuing to think only about the style of a building, they began to highlight the function to which the architectural objects had to respond.
There are no definite and written testimonies, but the design and execution of the swimming pool is attributed to the architect Enrico del Debbio, who among other works created the Foro Italico in Rome. The pool of the villa is very reminiscent of the Foro Italico and there are many similarities.
