Villa Palanti is one of the best preserved seaside villas in Milano Marittima.
Villa Palanti was born just over 100 years ago.
In 1912 the Società Anonima Milano Marittima decided to divide up the pine forest, located north of the historic center of Cervia, to create a first settlement of residential villas, which were to become, as a brochure of the time says, “a small white house on the shore by the sea, or hidden in the fresh green of a forest “.
The urbanization project belonged to Giuseppe Palanti, painter and teacher of the Brera Academy, as well as founding partner of the real estate that was to carry out the projects and, not surprisingly, his house remains today one of the best preserved.
The villa, in Art Nouveau style with exotic and Moorish decorations, is located in the center of Milano Marittima, halfway between the sea and the pine forest.
The villa is private and is one of the few to remain intact over time, many other villas in the area have given way to important hotels.
You can also see Villa Palanti by choosing the historic Cervia bike route, which is part of the 5 “slow” routes of Cervia, to be done alone or with a guide.
