The house appears to have been purchased in the late 1930s by the Oliva family of Venice, who lived there throughout the war years. With the advent of peacetime, the property came to be used in the summer as a holiday home as the family lived between Venice and Rome. Gina Lazzari Oliva often played host to friends and relatives, particularly her sisters Bice (Beatrice) and Ninì (Onorina) Lazzari and brothers-in-law Diego Rosa and Carlo Scarpa. Mrs Lazzari’s daughter, Maria Grazia Oliva, married Roman architect Attilio Lapadula in 1948. The house continued to be used as a holiday home by the family, which resided in Rome, and their guests.
La casetta annessa fu ristrutturata presumibilmente negli anni 50/60, ci fu una prima ipotesi di riassetto predisposta per la signora Gina, la proprietaria, dal cognato Carlo Scarpa ma evidentemente fu poi decisa una diversa soluzione.
The property includes an attractive walled garden (known as the brolo).
