There is a road from the eye to the heart
that does not go throught the intellect

Dream home ....modern meets ancient

Dream home ....I could live there forever.

The acclaimed Italian designers Ludovica+Roberto Palomba carve a serene retreat out of a 17th century oil mill in Salento ,filling it wiht custom creatinons and their greatest hits .When the couple decided to look for vacation home ,they turned their gaze from the hectic world of Milan ,their home base ,and started h ouse hunting over 600 miles aways in the southeastern part of Italy in Salento (sometimes referred to as the high heel in Italy's boot) .
They found the house of their dreams ,and old mill that dates back to the 17th century in Sogliano Cavour,a small village in the province of Lecce .

 “It was love at first sight,” says Serafini. “We are architects, and we immediately understood the potential of the place.” The couple realized that they could put their own imprint on the house but still retain its raw spirit, keeping the ancient stone floors, walls, and arches intact."
