Villa Malaparte

Published on April 3, 2009

The final act of Godard’s Contempt is stunning — in no small part due to its use of architect Adalberto Libera’s Villa Malaparte, situated high on the cliffs of Capri. The home was completed in 1942 for the Italian writer Curzio Malaparte, but was abandoned after his death in 1956. It has since been restored and can be reached only by crossing the island on foot.
