Firenze - Villa Basilewsky

Villa Basilewsky, born as the residence of Ol'ga Nikolaevna Bazilevskaja. When she died, her son Petr Aleksandrovič donated the villa for the creation of a hospital to be dedicated to her.

Still today the villa maintains this function, and yet it manages not to reveal it outside, keeping itself tidy, silent, half-hidden by the trees of its unadorned garden.
