IChiani – Charming & Sustainable Holidays at Gagliano del Capo, a few kilometers from Santa Maria di Leuca, Lecce, is not a mere vacation residence with a modern design, but the first construction in Salento based on the values and principles of sustainable tourism, leading to CasaClima Gold certification, also thanks to the application of Xenergy, the innovative range of products for thermal insulation by Dow.

First built at the start of the 1800s, Villa Li Chiani was part of a major restyling in 2017, conducted by the architect Gianfranco Marino, to create a light work of architecture with modern design that is still in line with the local tradition. The emphasis on energy regeneration makes the facility totally independent from fossil energy sources, as certified by the agency CasaClima.


The application of the Xenergy™ boards by Dow has been fundamental to achieve the objectives of thermal insulation and energy efficiency set for this project.
