Full description:

This house, built with the classic blocks of tufa at the beginning of the twentieth century, with the front facing the sea, has seen two World Wars and witnessed the mass emigration of the inhabitants of Marettimo in the aftermath of the Armistice, heading towards the coast of California hunting for luck.
In 1984 it was sold to a businessman from Turin, a pioneer in many fields, who loved the sea and sailing. In that time the "strangers" owners of a house in Marettimo were counted on one hand. He will see it only once and it will be the daughter, in 1986, to begin the important restoration and conservation that has invested the whole building, thanks to which all the original parts on the first floor have been preserved, especially the precious floors and doors. It was the first house in Marettimo to make the terrace livable with a 360 ° view of the sea and of the whole of Marettimo; the only one to have kept the original self-supporting stone staircase, the same used for the grand staircase of the Royal Palace of Caserta. From the second floor and from the terrace the view of the sea ranges from one end of Marettimo to the other and far beyond, towards the coast of San Vito Lo Capo and Marsala.
The furnishings were chosen from those of the family and partly purchased in Morocco. Do not miss a touch of design, such as the lamps of Artemis and the kitchens of the Alpes. The floors of the second floor have been made with Vietri ceramics with colors inspired by those of the sea and the sun, as well as the kitchen and the two bathrooms, one of which is on the first floor.
Over the years it has been an authentic refuge and reference point as well as for the owner, for its many friends, many of whom are writers, gallery artists and musicians.
