An anonymous townhouse in the fabric of the historic center has been the subject of a global redevelopment that has profoundly transformed its perception. A cramped and dark house is today a place full of light and large rooms directly related to the new inner courtyard, a sort of glass house with a strongly contemporary flavor. During the restoration work an ancient medieval wall was brought to light, establishing an historical element strongly connoting the large living space on the ground floor.
