Ibla, the historical centre of Ragusa, has been included in the list of UNESCO World Heritage sites since 2002. And it is also famous for being the set of the famous fiction "Il Commissario Montalbano".


The building, a small bourgeois house, dates back to the end of the 19th century, completely renovated respecting the original architecture and typical materials . In our project we wanted to enhance antique objects and furniture and that is why the concept of reuse is expressed throughout the house, the  rooms and common areas are furnished with completely restored Sicilian modern and vintage pieces.
