MUssolin villa exhibition
real gem of rhodes
Mussolin Villa offers a stunning landscape of both Turkey and Symi island.
The islands had been under the control of Italy since 1912 when these were relinquished to the Italians from the Ottoman Empire. Villa de Vecchi was constructed by Mussolini’s adviser, Count Cesare de Vecchi from 1936 to 1947. The truth is that Mussolini didn’t really spend any summer in the villa, which was supposed to be the original plan. However, Vecchi himself resided in this Italianate mansion during his term as Dodecanese Island’s governor until 1947.
The wonderful views from the balcony of the Mussolini Villa, the history surrounding the villa and Profitis Ilias are definitely worth discovering and seeing!
