Remember the stunning 1970s Villa Benedetti space age house in Ascoli Piceno, Marche, Italy we featured a short time back? Of course you do, it was one of our most read features. Well, we have some VERY bad news about it…
Well, WowHaus reader Marie Therese, who is based in Milan, tried to book a viewing of the house. Over to her:
A sad day today. When I requested an appointment for viewing the Villa Benedetti in the Marche, Italy, I learned that the owner had decided to convert it into an apartment complex and has started to tear down the insides of the villa. Incredible.
Yes, that’s right, the place is currently being gutted and will soon be replaced by some apartments.
When you think of the possibilities for this place (movie and TV set, hotel, holiday home, house etc etc), it’s a shame that the place is just being ripped apart, lost forever and replaced with something very likely to have a fraction of the character of the original build.
So wave goodbye to the flying saucer disco – it’s now consigned to history.
