Grazia Deledda's House

Grazia Deledda's house stands in Cervia, in a location between the historical centre and the sea in viale Colombo.

Villa Grazia Deledda

Grazia Deledda's house is a typical early 20th century holiday cottage.
Over the years, the seascape, which had impressed the writer when she bought it, has been transformed.
But the "biscuit colored" house has not changed a lot, since the writer described it in some stories of hers.

The rugged and wild landscape of Cervia, which she had chosen as a place to spend her holidays, perhaps reminded her of some parts of the east coast of Sardinia, so much so that in 1928, perhaps with part of the proceeds of the Nobel Prize for Literature (1927), she bought the small villa that she called Nuovoletta. In 1932, when the boulevard changed its name from Litoraneo to Cristoforo Colombo, she gave it the name Caravella.

When the writer died in 1936, it was sold to private buyers and over the years its use changed frequently.

The plaque dedicated to her, dictated by Aldo Spallicci, can still be seen on the façade.


It is a private house.
