What you should know about this house

Amenities and special features of this house

In the surroundings of Acireale, on an ancient lava stone road once the only link between the cities of Catania and Messina, this Atelier-House seems to want to go unnoticed next to the others, even if its Art Nouveau facade has already caught our attention.
We had the pleasure of meeting the artist who has lived there in the last 7 years. From the entrance you immediately notice that he wanted to give the building a new life through his artistic sensitivity. He has carried out a renovation that shows clear and lively signs of the present while preserving the centennial history, just like in his canvases.
Each room in this house seems designed to keep creativity alive and give you a unique experience. There is no boundary between the house and the atelier and this is its uniqueness. The artist tells us that he has reinvented these rooms as spaces of evolution for the most creative and important period of his career and that today he leaves it only because he has decided to go and live all year round in the Aeolian Islands.
An inscription found inside traces the building back to 1922. It maintains the distributive characteristics of traditional local architecture, with the rooms next to each other overlooking the internal courtyard: a large sunny terrace on the ground floor, a secret garden in the basement.
In the largest hall, the eternal charm of the antique cement tile floors and the decorated ceilings testify in the most natural way the late- Art Nouveau taste. Going down to the basement you enter the oldest heart of the building, where the vaults, the lava stone and some architectural elements reveal the original function of millstone of this part of the house. An intimate and cozy environment where the painter wanted to place his private studio.
Due to its structure, its characteristics and its strategic position, the house can also be converted into a holiday home or B&B. It is located a few minutes drive from both the sea of the villages of Stazzo and Pozzillo and from the entrance to the highway that leads to the renowned tourist destinations of the Sicilian east coast.

Catania hinterland: Location and surroundings of this property

Acireale is the second most populous municipality of the metropolitan city of Catania, famous for its history, churches, for the baroque and for the noble palaces that enrich not only the historical centre, but many other corners of the city.
Abroad it is known for its Carnival and for some picturesque villages on the Ionian sea (Capo Mulini, Santa Tecla, Santa Maria la Scala, Pozzillo) and the “Timpa”, a Nature Reserve established in 1999 in order to protect the enormous naturalistic, geological and landscape heritage of the area.
The hinterland is mostly cultivated with citrus trees that, in the flowering period, smell the air with its blossoms. The closest airport based in Catania is around twenty kilometers away.
