PERCHED ON A RUGGED HEADLAND OVERLOOKING THE ISLE OF CAPRI, CASA MALAPARTE IS A MELODRAMATIC BEAUTY. ONE OF THE AGENTS OF THIS MODERNIST, ARCHITECTURAL DRAMA ARE ITS FURNITURE, WHICH ARE CRAFTED FROM SOLID WOOD STRANDS OF THE FINEST QUALITY. NESTLED BETWEEN 20TH CENTURY AVANT-GARDE AND CLASSICAL MEDITERRANEAN INFLUENCES, EACH PIECE CLINGS TO SYMBOLIC DEVICES FOCUSED ON BLENDING THE AUTHOR'S ARTISTIC IDEAS AND PERSONAL HISTORY. CERTIFIED BY THE HEIRS OF CASA MALAPARTE, THIS REPRODUCTION SERIES AIMS TO REINSTATE THE SIGNIFICANCE OF THESE MASTERPIECES THROUGH TRADITIONAL CRAFTSMANSHIP, ALL BY GUARDING THE FEATURES THAT MARKED THEIR TIMELESSNESS.
