The property is situated in the foothills immediately to the north of the Shakespearean city of Verona. A panoramic avenue (Via dei Colli), which has twice been part of world championship cycling circuits, leads up to a gated private road giving access to a fenced in green area which encloses a number of large villas. 

This new, environmentally sustainable property was recently built in a spacious open area planted with olive trees. The area enjoys a favourable climate: it is protected from the prevailing winds by the hills to the north and, as it faces south, it is optimally exposed to the sun. Nearby there are ancient, partially paved footpaths and carriageways (known as “lasagne”) and a pleasant walk along these takes you in a short time to the historic centre of Verona. These pathways are in surroundings of historical interest with breathtaking views and abundant vegetation. 

In the same area there is a tract of the renowned E5 European Path, amply signposted, which goes from Lake Constance in Germany to the Italian Adriatic coast. the inspiration for this project was nautical and the aim was to evoke the wide open spaces of the sea. The land slopes downwards from north to south towards a valley and this meant that it was possible to build the property into the hillside. In fact, from above it is almost entirely hidden from view and one can only catch glimpses of it from time to time. Observed from the south, the wide prospective reveals a structure with a variety of articulated shapes and forms which together give a feeling of airiness and harmony.

Protruding stone wings symbolise white sails which stand out against the blue sky. Terraces jut out like the decks of a ship. The upper terrace features a panoramic swimming pool and uniquely designed stone basins in the shape of boats. Metal pillars lean outwards just as if they were the masts of a ship buffeted by the wind. Steel parapets recall a ship’s railings. The front of the building facing south seems to float on the surrounding terrain. The hill provides a kind of mooring from which, with a bit of imagination, one could set sail across the Padana plain as if it was the open sea towards the Apennine Mountains which appear like islands far away on the horizon. To the west, beyond the nearby Valpolicella valley, Monte Baldo towers over Lake Garda and the sight of the coastline of the lake brings to mind open sails setting out towards the infinite spaces of a great ocean
