Carlo Scarpa, Casa Tabarelli, 1967, Cornaiano. “The first thing we saw when we visited this villa outside Bolzano was this gate Scarpa designed. How we found the house in the first place is a story — the original owner’s son lives in Zurich and is crazy for cycling, and he found our blog last year and emailed us. When he visited Prague we met, and he told us about his father, a shop owner and manufacturer who was friends with Sottsass and Castiglioni and was an important figure in ’60s Italian design, and invited us to the house for a weekend.”
