It has been called the twentieth century's most beautiful house. Isolated ?at the tip of a craggy promontory on the Italian island of Capri, Casa?Malaparte has captivated modern architects and designers with the graceful power?of its lines and the drama of its setting...the stuccoed,?Pompeian red box appears to have grown straight out of the rock.?Its remoteness adds to its dreamy allure. Its simple shape?belies its assertive, sculptural presence."–Michael McDonough?

?This handsome book is the first in-depth examination of the Casa?Malaparte. Through original correspondence, plans, and drawings, Marida?Talamona uncovers written and graphic evidence attributing the house's?design to the client (writer Curzio Malaparte) rather than the architect?(Adalberto Libera). The book includes archival and current photographs and?new drawings, as well as an introduction by Giorgio Ciucci.
