Experience the restoration of Villa Finale in progress!

For a limited time, Villa Finale is offering the opportunity to visit Walter Mathis’s home before it opens to the public in October 2010.  Visitors will see the restoration in progress, and will learn technical details of the project as well as philosophical approaches from the Villa Finale staff.

This is the public’s one and only chance to see the home without its collection!
