Located on the beach front of seaside town Pesaro (at Piazzale della Libertà) Villino Ruggeri is an extraordinary gem of Italian Art Nouveau or Stile Liberty as they call it there.
It was built between 1902 and 1907 by architect Giuseppe Brega for pharmaceutical industialist Oreste Ruggeri.
The exterior is covered with decorations inspired by plants and the marine world - even lobster eave brackets!
The original outer gate was destroyed in 1936 when Ruggeri, despite the artistic value of the structure, was forced to donate iron to the country.
Today the house is a private residence.
