Luigi Moretti, Villa La Califfa, 1954, Santa Marinella. “Moretti was one of the biggest protagonists of the organic style; he designed the Watergate complex in Washington, D.C. This seaside villa has a very nice main gate that looks like ocean waves. I was on holiday with my girlfriend in Rome, and this was one hour away by train, with three villas by Moretti right next to each other. One of the others is called La Saracena, and both houses were featured in a famous Domus article in the ’60s.”
