Built under the rock of Taormina in a unique place in the world, Cuseni Home is one of the most beautiful villas in Taormina.
It is a House Museum declared in 1998 National Monument, and is protected by the Victoria and Albert Museum of London, which considers it a unique example of artistic association of Italian and English elements.
It considers the house one of the greatest masterpieces outside the homeland of the artistic movement "Arts and Crafts".
Cuseni House was designed by the painter Robert Hawrthon Kitson at the beginning of the 20th century.
He was enchanted by the place and decided to leave England to move to Sicily.
Kitson created an enchanting green oasis all around the villa.
The villa is full of frescoes, paintings, ceramics, antique furniture, pieces of art.
Cuseni House was one of the most coveted "salons" in Taormina and in Sicily after the First World War; its history is linked to the great events of the early 900 that saw Taormina as a destination of great foreign travelers and of people who settled there; in many cases they were guests at the villa.
The most beautiful room is named after Greta Garbo, who spent one night there.
