The Villa was built in the 1930s by desire and design by Curzio Malaparte. Villa Malaparte (or Casa Malaparte) is considered one of the masterpieces of modern architecture, integrating modernity and nature.

Situated on a rocky promontory rising from the sea, the parallelepiped-shaped structure that rises to the terrace seems to be, according to recent studies, entirely designed by Malaparte itself.

In the Villa was filmed “The Scorn (Le Mépris)”. An Italian-French dramatic film from 1963 directed by Jean-Luc Godard, with Brigitte Bardot. The screenplay was taken from the novel by Alberto Moravia.
The scenes in the spectacular setting of the Villa are now coming into the history of world cinema.

Today, Casa Malaparte is a cultural production center promoted by the Ronchi Foundation, home to architecture and design meetings.
