Photographer's Note

The villa is built on two floors plus the basement and has a rectangular plan. The building consisted of 12 rooms equally arranged on the total three floors. In the basement De Bosniaski had set up a sort of private museum of the carboniferous plant fossils he owned. The water supply was guaranteed by some tanks that received rainwater from the gutters of the villa itself and by some pipelines that took water from the terraces built in dry walls for agriculture.
To access the villa a new road was built on the ridge of the mountain that starts from Asciano in the locality of Asciano Valle. Another access is on the side of San Giuliano Terme through a narrow path partially interrupted due to the quarries extracting the limestone marble below.
The villa was abandoned following the death of De Bosniaski, after which it was used by the Germans in World War II as an observation post. Currently the villa is a ruin unusable as the roof collapsed together with part of the floors.
The villa is immersed in a garden of which even today we note the unusual floral species and fruit trees that still grow in the territory surrounding the villa.
