Cescolina² is the “older sister” of Cescolina, the first home of Selina Bertola and her family, “to the square” because in the meantime the family has doubled and from 2 it has gone to 4. This house has something magical, also linked to particular coincidences of fate that convinced Selina to pursue her dream and buy it.
The house is spread over 4 levels, connected by a sculptural staircase that overlooks the large inclined window. The house looks like a modern reinterpretation of the Roman Domus, which opens onto a central courtyard, in this house made of windows that look at each other. The interiors have been revised, but the plan layout has remained almost unchanged, with the exception of a few small demolitions.
‘Eclectic’ is the adjective that best describes the choices followed in the interiors, a succession of colorful environments, different from each other, as if they were small neighborhoods within a city, each characterized by its own spirit.
