    Absolutely stunning! I love both the interior and exterior, both very uncommon! All these paintings and frescoes, in such a beautiful state! I wonder what’s with the painting above the fireplace though, this weird head with 2 arms up in the air and feathers all around. What does it stand for?

    Oh my heavens! The view is incredible but almost gives me vertigo it is so high! Really a stunning and beautiful house. It may need some renovation to bring it to the standards of a buyer of that level but wow! It is gorgeous!

    Perhaps the painting above the fireplace is a coat of arms of the original owner? Or one of the subsequent ones? It they were not actually royal they could make their own coat of arms and might have been imaginative. Just a thought.

    I am in awe over this neo-medieval Villa. This house is a work of art and has so much privacy , Miss Apples, I didn’t see the Fireplace hood well enough until you mentioned it.Perhaps, it is a Medieval Medusa or another Gorgon. The insignia is a cadeusus. A puzzle to be solved.
