Vito

Vito is a small apartment in a former farmstead near the Sicilian city of Noto. The owners are artists who live in Milan and use part of the estate as their showroom. The apartment consists of a large room with an adjacent bathroom and kitchen at the back. The wall-flush doors between them are barely perceptible. The floor of specially made cement tiles and the carefully-renovated canopy roof create the perfect setting for the apartment’s minimalist interior, which includes vintage pieces as well as furniture designed by the owners. The folding screen in front of the bed enhances the experience of living in an artist’s studio. There are two balconies: a narrow one on the eastern side and a wider one facing the west with views over the surrounding countryside. The common outdoor areas are located in the older part of the farm, which dates to the beginning of the 19th century. During its renovation, great emphasis was placed on preserving traces of the past. Inspired by the ruins of the church of Santa Maria dello Spasimo in Palermo, the roof of a room was completely removed and the former stables have been transformed into an open veranda.

What to do

The south-east of Sicily is a very varied region and is ideal for fine eating and drinking, relaxing, bathing, hiking and visiting countless sight-seeing attractions. For lovers of architecture and culture the baroque cities of Noto, Modica, Ragusa Ibla, Scicli, Palazzo Acreide and Siracusa are all worth a visit.

Why we like this house

A minimalist yet poetic design lend the apartment its unique character.
