In 1957, Gio Ponti designed his third villa (after the Venezuelan Villa Planchart and Villa Arreaza) conceived for what Ponti used to call the "joie d'y vivre". Here too the inside and outside architecture, based on the large central room with two floor high and on the through-views, has a theatrical appeal.
