Truth never says anything. 

Plausibility adds to the imagination. 

A plausible book about the dreamed life of one of the most famous houses in the world.

 

Curzio Malaparte’s house in Capri is the core of a dense illustrated narration, a pretext for generating a thousand other architectures. By fluctuating between truth, interpretation and fabrication, this book is an original exploration into the multiple mysteries this place hides.
