Part 2 – Villino Ruggeri

07 May

This house is worth a post on its own….

This small villa overlooking the sea was commissioned by Oreste Ruggeri, a rich Italian industrialis, a pharmacist. The stucco ornament with flowing, sinuous line and the decorative wrought iron balconies and gates are identifiable features of the style known in Italy variously as the stile floreale, the stile Inglese, or the stile Liberty, after Liberty and Company in London, the fashionable store and manufacturer of cotton cloth. This style, also known as art nouveau or jugendstil, was popular in the last decade of the nineteenth century and the first decade of the twentieth. By Giuseppe Brega (Italian, 1878-1958)
