Description

Situated in the Coppedè district, the building is characterised by a total asymmetry, with medieval arches and friezes made from the fusion of different materials, such as marble, brick, travertine, terracotta and glass.

Built by the architect Gino Coppedè between 1920 and 1927, it consists of three adjoining buildings surrounded by a small garden according to the model of the garden city. On the floor of the entrance from Piazza Mincio is a round mosaic depicting three young girls playing the lyre, voice and guitar in ancient Roman dress, metaphors for the three villini, with the inscription: i villini delle fate, Neme, Melete, Aede.
