A villa with a ‘black eye’ in Italy

admin 0

In the town of Villa Savoye on the banks of the Viroqua River, a large building lies in ruin.

It was once the home of a family that made a living selling grapes.

When the family was killed by the mafia in the 1990s, it was left with a ruinous hole in its front yard.

Since then, it has been converted into a makeshift housing estate for Roma and other migrants.
