Sinossi

The dream of the Renaissance villa revived in 20th-century ItalyStarting in 1923, Arturo Ottolenghi and his wife Herta Wedekind designed and built a home dedicated to art outside Acqui Terme, amid the vineyards of Monterosso. This extraordinary landscape and Rationalist architectural complex, now completely restored by the new owners, is an example, probably the only one in Italy but rare in all 20th-century Europe, of collaboration between enlightened patrons and master painters, sculptors, architects, interior designers, landscape architects, and gardeners: painters Ferruccio Ferrazzi and Rosario Murabito, architects Marcello Piacentini, Giuseppe Vaccaro and Ernesto Rapisardi, sculptors Venanzo Crocetti and Arturo Martini, and landscape architect Pietro Porcinai.
