A year ago, while doing research for a post on Alpine style titled Fresca Alpina, I discovered Italian photographer Stefano Scatá and the many residential projects he has photographed. I saved the images you are about discover, anticipating today’s very post.
The all-wood constructed chalet located in the Italian Alpine village of Cortina d’Ampezzo was once home to the Neapolitan composer Francesco Durante (31 March 1684 – 30 September 1755). The traditional character of the chalet has been maintained by its current owner, who preserved the intimate pine paneled rooms furnished in regional Italian country style incorporating lively red and green checked fabrics. The Alpine charm of these centuries old rooms is particularly alluring as we enter the last week of the holiday season. Apres-ski, anyone? Happy holidays!
