A HOUSE BRIMMING WITH ART, ARCHITECTURE AND POETRY

Casa Oliva Quero

“When we were little girls, we used to look at that house on Via Roma in Quero. The geraniums on the balcony, even when it was locked up and we knew Mrs Oliva was in Rome. A house waiting for her owners to return. Waiting for them to come back and greet the little statue of the Madonna which has always protected the entrance. Waiting for them to run up and down the wooden stairs.
Generations of children played in the little brolo or walled garden, used for the wedding of young Maria Grazia when she married the love of her life, Attilio. It was a house filled with art, architecture and poetry, and the aroma of the wedding pudding made by the matriarch herself, Signora Gina.

We also started noticing the house when our father started going inside because of his ties with Carlo Scarpa. Gigi, our father, was his tailor. And Carlo was his architect.

Now that house is ours …and yours.

We have brought it back to life. In its rooms, you can see the style of the intriguing members of the Lazzari, Lapadula, Scarpa and Oliva families who all loved the house before us and you.

Come and visit us, and we will tell you its story.”
