Casa Carbone – Lavagna - (FAI, Fondo per L’Ambiente Italiano):
“a coherent example of the typically Ligurian fin-de-siècle style in terms of external decorations and architectural structure.
Rich in period furnishings and paintings, Casa Carbone in short exceptionally preserves intact the domestic environment of a middle-class family of the 1900s in Liguria …”
