Inside Out (Australia) - - Homes -

Who lives here: Pi­etro Castagna, a Mi­lan­based in­te­rior de­signer, spends week­ends here with his dogs Enzo and Nina. Style of home: Built in the 1600s as a con­vent, the villa is lo­cated in the town of Bel­la­gio on the shore of Lake Como. It’s been through sev­eral ren­o­va­tions over its life­time, most re­cently when Pi­etro sim­pli­fied the struc­ture to cre­ate four apart­ments. Pi­etro pur­chased the prop­erty 10 years ago and spent two-and-a-half years ren­o­vat­ing it. The ren­o­va­tion would have been quicker, but lo­cal rules pro­hibit ren­o­vat­ing dur­ing the sum­mer hol­i­day sea­son.
