Holiday Rental House
The Dimora Storica is a historic luxury villa of Positano, the pearl of the Amalfi Coast. It was built as an Episcopal residence in 1716 in a baroque age. It was furnished handsomely with masterpieces from the Middle East and other parts of the world, thanks to the fact that Positano was situated along the main trade route of spices and silk. The merchants stopped here, fascinated by the magic atmosphere of the town, leaving not only works of art, but a mix of cultures of ancient populations. The Dimora Storica showcases this heritage with its painted ceiling, lacquered doors, inlaid-wood furniture, stucco-works and the ancient laces hand-made by the master craftsmen of that time. Since '900 Positano became the alcove of artists and literary men like Edward Ghillausen and Eva Maria Vivaldi...The Dimora Storica is a historic luxury villa of Positano, the pearl of the Amalfi Coast.
