The house, the design of which was assigned in 1964 to the architect Raoul Biancani, is made of various materials: brick, masonry, wood and large windows. In this interesting structure on three floors, the fullness of the brick walls is in constant harmonic play with the large window openings.
Natural light floods these spaces; in different hours of the day, it lights up first one area and then another, playing on the surfaces and the colours of the objects positioned inside the spaces. It's a personal place where every detail has been decided by him; a studied arrangement of alternating rhythms, with accelerations and pauses in which the light always indicates the new key of the score to follow. The large house museum is arranged on two floors, the second of which is surrounded by a panoramic terrace. Every space becomes a setting for expertly arranged artefacts, with a consistent and methodical desire to create a fusion between works and architectural elements of various eras. The stairs connecting the floors is also enriched with works, both on the walls, where a canvas depicting St. Apollonia with tooth pincers in her hand stands out, and on the steps and wall shelves where stones and sculptures stand.
Dante Bini, the world-famous architect, known also for having designed La Cupola, the futuristic villa on the Costa Paradiso in Sardinia for Michelangelo Antonioni e Monica Vitti, lived in the lower floor of the house.
In this dwelling in which every corner speaks of art, there hides, like in the centre of a Renaissance maze garden, a small Kunstkammer in which artifacts of multiple and multiform origins are wonderfully presented on glass shelves, the transparency of the supports making it possible to enjoy what is on display from every angle. An array of finds is gathered in it, together with curiosities of every kind.

Valuable example of 1960s architecture, the work of the architect Raul Biancani, 1964.
... In those same years the great architect Dante Bini, who lived here, designed incredible architectural works, in total assonance with the futuristic technological innovations that expressed modern concepts of spatiality, closely linked to the explorations of Space.
