This extraordinary property developed its unique character thanks to the taste and talent of a visionary owner Alberto Mondadori – son of Arnoldo Mondadori, founder of Italy's famous publishing house Mondadori – and talented architects that imbued distinct styles of two of the richest decades of modern history: the 50's and the 60's. It's no wonder why Domus – a leading Italian architectural publication – published an article on January 1975 to celebrate the innovative design, material and building techniques used during the first stage of the construction.

The original property, a traditional Tuscan country house, was demolished under Alberto Mondadori's guidance and replaced by a series of units very much inspired by Frank Loyd Wright's architecture, which is reflected in the crafted combination of bricks, stones, glass and cement. The garden, about 2 hectars of land, was landscaped to create bucolic areas where to gather and rest. A good portion of the garden remained untouched to preserve local wildlife and fauna. Through the years the Villa has hosted famous artists, writers, poets, sport and acting celebrities.

The recent renovation work has been conceived and lead by the great architect Alessandro Magris whose work with Superstudio collective from the late 1960s is exposed at MOMA in New York.
