Between 1904 and 1915 an extremely talented young architect by the name of Giovanni Michelazzi (1879-1920) designed a number of small villas in what had become Florence's new suburbs.
Although many of his villas, which were built in the Art Nouveau style (known in Italy as Stile Liberty), have been demolished, a few survive.
Michelazzi's masterpiece is, perhaps, the Villino Broggi-Caraceni (1910-11), which is situated in Via Scipione Ammirato.
A slightly earlier work is the Villino Giulio Lampredi (1908-09) in Via Giano della Bella, on the south side of the city.
