‘’Would you like to live in a church? ” To many, this may seem a capricious, bizarre or even too fashionable choice, followed by other, extremely varied comments. Instead, for the couple who owns and lives in what was once a 17th century church, it has been an enlightening and fascinating experience.
To be able to admire, at any time of the day, the frescoes surrounding you, the vaulted ceiling, to let yourself be carried away into the history of these walls, is like being closed inside a harpsichord, listening in secret to the hidden music that the instrument has played, thousands of times and by as many hands. Its entrance has a romantic feeling with its exposed, stone walls and arch.
A dwelling, not reserved merely for religious purposes, but which combines religion and culture, art and beauty so as to become alive once again, at the same time as preserving its history. So this carefully restored, little church has become a loft: elegant, charming and welcoming and with all the comfort of a normal home. And also a delightful, private courtyard where you can sit outside while reading your shopping list as you stroke your kitten.
This building is part of a residential complex which has been reexamined and divided into time-sharing properties, with garage. You should take a look at the residents'shared, relaxation areas where you can enjoy the swimming pool and tennis court; this allows you to live outdoors as well and, when you feel like it, to enjoy the friendly company of others, while admiring the panoramic views and the fresh air of the pleasant countryside around Piacenza.
