The architect Francesco Librizzi restored this ancient house in Cefalù, Sicily (Italy). The stair - leading to a roof terrasse looking at the sea - is surely impressive, but I adore the plays of cement hexagon tiles.
"When thinking about Sicily, it is almost impossible not to fall on the easy traps of stereotypes surrounding its imagery. A winterless weather, the images of great seas and white sands, colorful ceramics and traditional finely decorated spaces are deeply rooted in the memories and expectations of anyone on the island. Both visitors and indigenous people. The great luxury offered there to designers is also the only possible strategy: totally abandoning any resistance."
