The building is made with materials coming from Monte Generoso. Its walls are covered with “bachitt da nisciöla” and “molta”; the stone floors in the corridors and the chestnut beams in the rooms are still those of the eighteenth century and all come from Monte Generoso; while in the kitchen there is a fireplace, also of that period, made of molera, the stone of Cagno and Malnate quarries.
The original structure included a stable for the goats, a room used as a dairy (the current cellar/ warehouse) on the ground floor and rooms for residential use on the upper floors. The eighteenth-century fireplace in the kitchen, above which there was a “graa” (also known as metato, a small room where chestnuts used to be dried), was the only source of heat in the house.
After almost a century and a major renovation, which has not reshaped the rooms but only replaced some materials, the house now returns to life and to welcome travelers.
