Situated halfway between the main port and Piscità and close to the island’s famous Sciara del Fuoco (lava scar), this 18th-century townhouse is located right along the road, just a short stroll from the water’s edge. Standing out against the simpler more provincial houses on the island, the villa’s ornate construction and details are more elaborate and a testament to the early southern Italian noble family who started out here.
Restored by award-winning Milan based architect Luciano Giorgi and his partner Antonino Burgo, this villa to rent in Italy is evocative of their work with luxury brands and commercial spaces. Partnering with the architects, the art dealer owners maintained the structural characteristics while simplifying the interiors to reflect a more modern pared down aesthetic. Built on two levels against a slope, the configuration allows direct access to both floors from the outside.
