In 1920 the villa was purchased by a local engineer who personally took care of the restoration and decoration of the property, not only under a structural point of view, but also updating it to the most recent needs and equipping it with the latest comforts.
He paid great attention to the restoration of the Piano Nobile and especially to the main lounge where the vaulted ceiling was painted by Ugo Scaramucci and the interior decorator Giovanni Tucci with the history of music throughout the centuries.
The portals and the fireplace were purchased in Florence. He tidied up the outside space by taking way the old vineyard and landscaping the garden. He bought also some decorations and fixed the walls like they were in the XVI Century.
