Art Deco House In Ferrara, Italy

Ferrara Art-Deco House With Round Window

Have you ever walked passed a house or a building that just left you with a feeling that something amazing or horrifying must have happened there before?  Like a crazy lady with only a glimpse of who she once was left in her eyes, she draws you in without saying a word and you can’t help wondering what lies beyond the facade. While strolling down an unassuming city street in Ferrara, Italy I came across this amazing Art Deco house hidden behind a tall old concrete wall like a fortress with only a wrought iron gate allowing a view.  I could feel the ghosts of the past lingering in the overgrown shrubs. I immediately imagined that this house must have been filled with music, smoke, booze, flapper girls with long cigarettes, poker chips, gangsters and mystery in it’s heyday and it was a place that people went with purpose to forget the day.  There was definitely more here than just a house and it wanted to speak to me.  I only wish I could have entered to see what it had to say.
