The designer and director of the construction is Ing. Francesco Muratorio, already known in the city to have realized important projects, such us the main Hospital of the city. By 1940 the first floor of the Villa is completed. Following interventions give us the actual image of the Villa, with his sober and elegant architecture, example of a unique neorinascimental and rational desing.
After six years of careful renovation under the direction of architect Marco Calvi the Villa has been brought to his ancient splendor, ready to host events and meetings. The organization of the interiors has followed the original plan, as well as the details such as tapestries and architectural elements, renovated with philological spirit. Villa Faravelli has been reopened to the public in 2005 with a personal exhibition of George Baselitz.
Villa Faravelli hosts since2016 the MACI - Imperia Contemporary Art Museum and the Collection of modern art by the Architect Lino Invernizzi, donated to the city by the widow Maria Teresa Danè.
