Villa Due Pini

Surrounded by an olive grove and overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea as well as the Aurunci mountains Villa Due Pini is situated on a hill in the small town of Itri. The house is also known as “White Pumpkin” and as unusual as its name is its story of origin: The villa is based on the redesign of an unfinished reinforced concrete skeleton. The initial structure determines the roof pitch and defines the visible concrete framework of the living room. The austere appearance of the architecture is broken up by two terraces that open the house to the outside and by the facade of white ceramic mosaic. The entrance and the base in orange create colourful accents. Villa Due Pini was designed by Cherubino Gambardella who is considered one of the most influential contemporary architects in Italy. He was the model for the main character in the award-winning film ” La grande bellezza ” directed by Paolo Sorrentino.
