For the Florentine home of Roberto Cavalli, the architect Italo Rota ‘dresses’ the entire residence with a technological, hyperdecorative metal skin. The facade, made with perforated sheet metal treated with a sprayed and etched copper finish, is a bit of virtuoso manufacturing done at Cantù by Marzorati Ronchetti. The perimeter of the entire residence is covered with evocative metal lace. The three sides (lengths 10 – 25 – 13 meters, maximum height 7.5 m) are covered by a cage in laser-perforated stainless steel. The result is a lace effect, or botanical ivy-like patterns.
