Often called the most beautiful house in the world, Casa Malaparte in Capri, Italy, is dramatically sited on a promontory overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. It was home to Curzio Malaparte (1898-1957), the Italian writer who designed the building. Malaparte: A House Like Me offers an extraordinary look at Malaparte, the man and the house, with a series of photographs by the renowned Italian photographer Mimmo Jodice, archival materials and documents, poetry, original art, letters, and memoirs. The stunning artwork is augmented with commentaries by a range of international personalities (including Robert Venturi, Emilio Ambasz, and Willem Dafoe) which embody unique insights into the controversial artist and his provocative home.
