In the 1920s and 1930s, the Villa Foscari in Venice, better known as La Malcontenta, became a meeting place for intellectuals, artists, and members of the nobility such as Sergei Diaghilev, Boris Kochno, Serge Lifar, Winston Churchill, Robert Byron, Diana Cooper, Bruce Chatwin, and Le Corbusier. It was an era of inspiring encounters between aristocrats, the avant-garde, snobs, and intellectuals that ended when Italy entered World War II. Antonio Foscari recounts this lively period in the building's history and talks about its then owner, Albert Clinton Landsberger, and his friends Catherine di Rochegude, Baronesse von Erlanger, and Paul Rodocanachi, who not only lovingly renovated the villa, but made it such a lively place for the first time. The text is complemented by numerous photographs dating from this exciting time that convey an impression of what was happening in the villa in those days. www.lamalcontenta.com
