Casa Talia by Marco Giunta and Viviana Haddad

Talìa is a fascinating place, on the island of Sicily in Modica, Italy, an island on the island, where harmony is the main protagonist, thanks to the accurate restoration made by the two owners, Marco Giunta and Viviana Haddad - a young married couple of architects who formed in Milan – who decided to live here, choosing the slowliving.
The project of restoration has been inspired by the intimate feature of the Arabic houses in the Medina, which are peacefull places even though they are in the center of a busy town.
Like in a Moroccan riad, rooms in Talìa are indipendent and do not comunicate, but they all face the central garden, which is an important element of the facility and is the place of encounters.

Great attention has been given to the choise of materials, which are natural, ecological, and, above all, typical of the Sicilian tradition: stone walls, lime plasters, cane roof, stone and polychrom tiled floors.
