Casina Malò is a stone 65 square meters (700 ft2) house built in the ancient rural village Mergnano San Savino, born around one of the aristocratic mansion of Camerino’s nobilty. The house has the distinctive trait of being built on 3 floors, recently renovated and reinterpreted to become the home of an architect who fell in love with Camerino, his people and his territory.
Although the house has an unusual structure, Casina Malò is a bright home open to a striking panoramic view: southward a glimpse of the ducal city, and northward the boundless countryside where the horses from the near farm ride freely.
Casina Malò is genuinelly sober, with no added frills; it valorizes the manuality of his modest origin. Truly intimate and private even in its tiny walled garden, it’s meant to thrive souls. Basic and poetically true.
All the spaces, always tiny, have been creativily renovated to the perfect living of a couple or a single. Beyond the entrance a room (former kitchen) hosts the old fireplace, where you want to sit for a delightedly rest during wintertime; then, before the garden, the former storeroom hosts the kitchen where to have lunch, as in the native organization of the spaces the sink is separated from the rest of kitchen and is found in a full glass corner next to an original washroom.
The central stairway guides to a bright vestibule (former living room) with the wardrobe right beside the entrance to the bedroom with private bathroom.
A second stairway continues to the second floor, which used to host two small bedrooms. It is now is a single long space, usable as living room/study room, with a console table as desk, a sofa bed for hosts, tv and a collection of classic music CDs.
Mergnano, the village, inhabited mostly by locals, is surprising because of its silence, clean air, spontaneous vegetation, the peculiar scent of the land and the animals; in summertime, at night, fireflies!
Few steps away, in front of the private chapel of the local Lords, ancient cypresses overshadow old benches where to read and meditate, looking up to the ducal city with the Sibillini mountains in the background.
3 km away the municipal sport ground is found, with numerous courts, activities and indoor swimming pool for the year round and an open one for summertime. The municipal public transportation also serves the village with several daily buses. It is possible to rent bicycles to ride around and visit the many different villages; way out of the ordinary traffic and deep through the different tones of green offered by the landscape.

I'm an architect born in front of the blue see but deeply in love with the various shades of green offered by my beautiful region; it's for this reason that I work with passion to preserve its landscapes. Private business keeps away from my lovely home/shelter that I gladly offer to anyone who's looking for some peace and self-contemplation. See you soon!
A note about its name: "Casina" because as lovely as tiny - "Malò" after my sons Martina e Lorenzo!
