THE DAZZLING ROCOCÒ OF A STYLISH CULTURAL LANDSCAPE.
Lively and elaborate landscape-architecture. The building has features one and two floors projecting outwards, with terraces set above them fitted with balustrades and ornamenta-tion inspired by late 19th-century eclecticism.
An imposing iron gate leads to the fascinating and sophisticated architectural design of Villino Rasponi built in 1901 and designed by Carlo Pincherle, father of the famous writer Alberto Moravia.
The architect designed the building to be stylistically ex-pressive and full of charm. The elaborate stucco decoration on all the facades is particularly eye-catching. The facades are decorated with pilasters, stringcourse cornices and over-hanging balconies clad in ashlar.
The first-floor windows have gables at the top, while the ground/second-floor windows have elaborate stucco cornices.
The layout of interiors has been modified during the years and new mezzanine levels have been constructed to exploit the height of each floor. A number of Art Nouveau-style stained glass windows and doors have been preserved.
