Relaxing at Villa Volpi. The magnificent residence located on the coast of Sabaudia, overlooking the sea and immersed in a park of 10 hectares, has always exerted a great charm on the cinema.
Its connection with this world is so visceral that, not only films like Divorzio all'Italiana, starring Marcello Mastroianni, chose it as a set, but its origin is connected to the Venice Film Festival. It was in fact the wife of the founder of the Festival, Countess Nathalie Volpi di Misurata to commission the construction of the building to architect Tomaso Buzzi. In the 60s she wrote him "Faites-moi une petite folie" so the archistar came up with this extraordinary neo-classical Venetian-Palladian style villa worthy of a Roman emperor. Ready to move in?
