At random from a hole in the clouds, the sun peeks its rays on a point, illuminating the horizon in golden tones. Suddenly, the ochre of a village emerges from the landscape, on top of a headland. The shadow does not exist here: the houses wear the sun in the color of their walls. A touch of red here illuminates the garden of Gicaber’s Villa, member of Ville in Italia, and serves as a contrast to the lush vegetation. Here are the broken tones of a fresco that warm an interior where the ambience must be tempered with a collection of blown-glass vases. Everywhere these warm colors bring a warmth and an atmosphere composed of authentic, simple, comfortable luxury.
