Majestic historic villa in the Milan city center with private garden and parking place nearby.
The elegant building dates back to the early 1900s, owned by an ancient family of the Roman aristocracy who moved to Milan in the 1920s. Located in a quiet and prestigious area of the city, a few steps from the Giuseppe Verdi Conservatory of Music and from Piazza del Duomo, the house hosted the writer Luigi Santucci for almost fifty years, considered by critics one of the greatest exponents of Italian literature in the second half of the last century. The basement of the house, often used for receptions and parties, was frescoed by the painters Giuseppe Novello and Mario Vellani Marchi. The house has an undoubted historical importance. Illustrious names of Italian literature have been regular guests in the Santucci residence. Among those who attended the Santucci residence there are: Don Primo Mazzolari, the poet David Maria Turoldo, Giuseppe Marotta, Giuseppe Lazzati, Italo Calvino, Piero Bargellini, Virgilio Lilli, Bruce Marshall, Elio Vittorini, Domenico Rea, Nazareno Fabbretti and, in more recent years, the cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi, president of the Pontifical Council for Culture and a close friend of Santucci and his family.
The house has been published over the years, in some of its parts, in books and magazines.
