The highly intriguing “La Casina delle Civette” stands out as a fine example of Liberty Style art.
Between 1910 and 1920, at the height of Liberty Style’s popularity, a small group of artists, including Duilio Cambellotti, Paolo Paschetto, Umberto Botazzi and Vittorio Grassi, turned the old chalet or Swiss Cabin nestling in the grounds of Villa Torlonia into today’s Museum of Liberty Stained Glass.
Through a series of experiments and by employing a number of varied techniques, full vent is here given to the artists’ imagination. This particularly attractive building in fact contains countless lead-alloy stained glass windows and doors depicting birds, butterflies, although primarily owls, from which it gets its name and its enchanting atmosphere.
