Art Deco House

Ferrara, Italy. 2013

Have you ever walked past 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 its heyday and it was a place that people went with the 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.
