  • I often stay at Villa argentina to visit exhibitions or for some event held there. Each time is an amazing wonder moves inside, on liberty, original ceramics by Galileo Chini, the garden with some specimens of Oriental plants transport you to distant memories. For those who happen to Viareggio is a place not to be missed

  • This not an 'epic attraction' but admission is free, the villa is lovely, and they host some great exhibitions. My favorite feature of the villa is the aggregate stone floors which are beautiful. Try ...  more »
  • An Art Nouveau gem; from private home after many years it has been restored and returned to the city as a public building, space for exhibitions, cultural initiatives and meetings.

  • Nice, relaxed villa from the turn of the century, welcoming staff. Occasionally hosts art exhibitions. Small but enjoyable.
  • Lovely place
  • The building, dating from around 1926, eclectic style is distributed on three floors in.. In the cosy lounges and on the beautiful terrace villa Argentina lives as a Palace of culture and tourism all year round, through the Organization of exhibitions, cultural events and meetings. The villa is the example of the modernist language that is expressed in. Europe at the beginning of 1900. The first owner was Francesca R Ojtana. But it is his daughter Josefina Baroness Arborio Mella of Sant Elia which are attributed all expansions and improvements. The first historical record of the villa dating back to 1926 shows the project signed by the engineer Alessandro Lippi when the building was referred to as villa Argentina, a country with which the family had a strong bond. Date back to this time, the ceramic frieze on the front elevation work of maestro Galileo Chini and the frescoes inside made from Sardinian painter Giuseppe Biasi in 1930. The villa is spread over an area of 1650 square metres and has seen expansions until the 40 with the completion of the tower which delimits the construction of via Fratti. Villa Argentina is now owned by the province of Lucca who oversaw the restoration and protects its high historical and artistic value.

  • Recommended by a bartender, then visited purely by chance. A pleasant surprise. There are works by contemporary artists and found an "unscheduled" pretty cool.
