Casa Malaparte "A house like me" — announced Curzio Malaparte, a poet and egomaniac, describing his villa on Capri. There are only a few buildings in the world which illustrate such antique beauty and mystical charm; Karl Lagerfeld discovered an extraordinary building called 'La Casa Albero Nella Pineta di Fregene', designed by the architect Perugini in 1967. This experimental building is situated in the midst of a group of trees. The construction of wood, concrete and glass encloses one room, only a few doors exist, even the toilet can be seen from the bottom. Lagerfeld's book is more than a detailed photographic study about this subtle construction. It seems that the photographer uses this subject as a pretext to "paint with the camera" his own constructive pictures.
