Casa Malaparte is one of the most controversial and beautiful houses of modern architecture.

Originally designed in 1938 on a breathtaking spot of Capri by Adalberto Libera, the house was completed in 1942 in a tortuous relationship with its owner, writer, intellectual and fascist Curzio Malaparte.

In 1963 it was the protagonist of Jean-Luc Godard’s movie “Le Mépris” with Brigitte Bardot and Michel Piccoli.

John Hejduk wrote about it a beautiful article for Domus in 1980.
