The 70’s villa had to be lightened and brought back to its best. Dark furniture, too oppressive finishings and redundant fabrics made it dark and discordant and, especially in the interiors, far from the Mediterranean character of the structure. The purpose of the project has been, therefore, to recreate unity between exterior and interior spaces, brightening the spaces. The architect Fabrizia Frezza has chosen white waxed cotto tiles, for the first floor, and whitened oak for the second floor, where at the candor of white tiles the warmth of wood gives more strength to the theme of light. And it plays a key role in all the project, thanks to the white plastered walls and the clear flooring and to the light pastel colored fabrics of the bedrooms. In this case, the touch of color is given by the purple velvet of the sofas in the living room, backdrop to the family antiques and to the furnishings created by Fabrizia Frezza. Customized or recycled design, such as the large family cupboard to the cabinets, whitened and finely decorated with golden patinas, with a vaguely retrò touch. Near to the swimming pool, the white masonry chaise-longue, framing a surreal panorama of Hercolaneum dominated by the imposing Mount Vesuvius on the background, have the task of completing the suggestive and effective definition of space.
