Being an architect, Giulio devoted himself to the design of the villa and he soon realized that a beautiful building or a beautiful swimming pool was what guests already expected from an elegant villa. Therefore, he had to go further, looking for new technologies, new (or old) materials, so he chose to opt for a wooden structure protected by a hydraulic lime shell mixed with natural aggregates, materials already known and used by the ancient Romans but re-employed in a modern way . The structure is finished with a 16 -meter glass wall overlooking Alba, the Langhe and the Alps.
The Villa has got a controlled mechanical ventilation system that allows the total recirculation of the internal air volume every three hours, an efficient heat pump for environmentally friendly air conditioning of the rooms, a series of motorized curtains for the penumbra of the internal rooms during the warmer days, a salt-water infinity pool and, above all, the true treasure … a private garden for exclusive use and an equipped kitchen area next to the pool.
We have talked about the renaissance of Alba and the Langhe, perhaps we should talk about a second renaissance, the first occurred in the late 1950s, when a series of personalities such as Michele Ferrero, Franco Miroglio, Pinot Gallizio and many others, combining an artisanal and entrepreneurial savoir fair, transformed a small provincial town into the forge of a cultural and commercial renaissance, which then resulted in the awareness of being part of a unique territory. A territory well represented by its wines and gastronomic richness. The entry of the Langhe into the UNESCO panorama has given birth to a new incentive to which we have responded by offering our best.
