Madonna House – Island of Ponza

Latio, Italy

The villa is located in the area called Le Forna, the highest part of the island of Ponza. Dating back to the 1800s, the house was built in local tuff stone. Its simple façade is decorated with two rose windows above the French doors.

This old house, filled with all its furniture, was abandoned by a woman who had emigrated to America, along with many other islanders, in search of a better life. From the property there is a beautiful view overlooking the rock called Tartaruga (Turtle) and the island of Palmarola.

With the same respect that has always distinguished her relationship with the island, Anna Fendi decided that the house should keep its old name, “Villa Madonna” and that its interiors should be restored in keeping with its original style and spirit.
