I passed this house whilst in inland Sardinia a few weeks ago. It looked like a film set. There was an amazing mix of hand-drawn portraits of soldiers and political figures, photographics portraits, and medals. We were in a sleepy little mountain town with bunting rustling in the afternoon wind and a few old men smoking cigars inside the airconditioned cafés. The view I had of this front room was through two massive windows just open onto the street. I could not believe my eyes.
