Project Description

_Villa Malfatti

An historic nineteenth-century residence immersed in a centuries-old park where you can breathe in an atmosphere of times gone by.

Built in the early nineteenth century by the opera singer Teresa Belloc, the villa was purchased in 1888 by the Trentino baron Stefano Malfatti of Monte Tretto and radically renovated. Later escaped other modifications, except for ordinary maintenance, and is still the home of the Malfatti descendants.

The current building is inspired by a mixed design of classic and baroque, with two large terraces on the side towards the rural building. Under the lower one is a large atrium in which the Latin phrase “AMPHION THEBES THERESIA VILLAM” stands out.

With these words Teresa Belloc wanted to immortalize the construction of her house which took place thanks to the voice of a great Rossinian interpreter recalling the myth of Amphion who, with the sound of the lyre, transported the bricks to erect the wall of Thebes.

The spacious halls with parquet floors extend in width as well as in height, with ceilings that show the textures of the different inlays used. Majestic crystal chandeliers crown the most important rooms providing guests with the authentic sensation of experiencing nineteenth-century royalty.
