Two intersecting bar shapes bookend to complete the implied courtyard of the original house, creating a high mountain yard that connects the two structures into a single family gathering place. The interior has a large open plan living and dining room, a yoga and billiards room in the basement, and on the top floor, a master suite that has expansive views across the pool to the densely forested mountains beyond. Very little was even documented about the roles these women played in the war because men were embarrassed that the women took care of them and books were written primarily by men.

A gripping narrative of four extraordinary women who delivered intelligence, letters and weaponry in the cause of resisting the German occupation of Italy. But the death rattle of Mussolini’s two decades of Fascist rule—with its corruption, greed, and anti-Semitism—was unrelentingly violent and brutal.Caroline Moorehead, the author of A House in the Mountains, focuses on Turin, the center of resistance in the north, and the part women played.
