Villa Franceschi


This was built in two stages, between the years 1900 and 1920. The building was altered during the 1920s, either as a consequence of the 1916 earthquake or because it changed hands, and the rear part with its small tower dates from this stage.

A typical feature of this period is the little summerhouse in the garden, concealing the well, an essential feature of Riccione villas in the early twentieth century. The exterior decorations are especially fine; made of cement, they are probably the work of Guerrino Giorgetti, who was much in vogue at the time. The villa is seat of the Modern and Contemporary Art Gallery.

Accessible to disabled guests.
