  • From the area surrounding the promenade you begin to climb up the hill with the castle of St. George, and you will meet beautiful stately villas ; Among them, Villa Marmori stands out for its richness of forms, typically art if not art; the pastel soft color also gives her grace and, perhaps because of its beauty, was chosen as the seat of the Giacomo Puccini Conservatory.

  • Villa Ceretti-Marmori is one of the best preserved Art Nouveau villas of La Spezia, that floral buildings hosts a hundred, some of which are among the most important in Italy (Palazzo Maggiani, White-Horse Palace, Palazzo Campodonico, Palace Fan-Fumagalli). Dating is late 1925-26, the fact remains that the villa is like a seal of an era. The architect is Franco Oliva, who simultaneously in the city will build more eclectic Deco buildings (Palazzo della Provincia), rationalists (City Hall). The furnishings, largely preserved, are the best the era has produced: stained glass Windows by Beltrame, irons and ebanisterie of Mazzuccotelli, frescoes by Luigi Agretti. For years the villa hosts the Conservatory Giacomo Puccini which has guaranteed, despite the change of use, storage. The atmosphere enhanced by changing reflections of stained glass, from attention to detail (watch the floors, handrails, lamps, stucco), is oltrepiù spiced by music, musical tests of students who exert herself in every room. A unique experience, a real dive in an elegant past. On the way out, don't miss all around the nucleus of buildings facing onto via XX Settembre and piazza Virginia Oldoini, some of the most beautiful Art Nouveau buildings by Vincenzo Bacigalupi (Palaces of Fontega I, II, III, IV) and Palazzo San Giorgio di Raffaello Baker standing right in front of the Conservatory, with its momentum Deco, while atop the statues stylized Augusto Magli stand happily in the blue of the sky
