About this deal

This 1,200 square-foot 2 bedroom retreat is essentially a wooden tent on a platform that opens to the forest and river. An integrated building information system includes real-time sensor information and energy performance that is controlled remotely. Today’s Nonfiction post is on A House in the Mountains: The Women Who Liberated Italy from Fascism by Caroline Moorehead. News from Dezeen Events Guide, a listings guide covering the leading design-related events taking place around the world. Elsewhere, there's a snug family room and dining space, an impressive entry foyer with a vaulted ceiling, as well as four bedrooms and three bathrooms.

Nestled high up in the peaks of Snowdonia National Park in Wales, UK, this bucolic bolthole is nothing short of idyllic. Moorehead implies that given their views and preaching, they laid the foundation for the liberation theologists of the rebellions in South America). There is also some fascinating commentary on the connection and allegiance between women and other marginalised groups, namely Italy’s working class and Jewish population. But the death rattle of Mussolini’s two decades of Fascist rule—with its corruption, greed, and anti-Semitism—was unrelentingly violent and brutal. A stunning four bedroom chalet hidden in a tranquil area of Tignes de Lac with balconies and mountain views.Some people love the beach, while others would rather dive deep into the woods for a restorative getaway (bonus: no jellyfish). Despite the challenges that come with owning a mountain property, there are a lot of benefits to your overall well-being; such as clean air, stunning views, less stress and anxiety, a strong community spirit and a more active lifestyle. The fascists were deeply imbedded in Italian society; they ended up in control of many levers of power following the war. Aluminium-framed glazing allows for idyllic views, while double-height pitched ceilings, natural timber elements and crisp white walls allow the landscape beyond to do all the talking.

I really admire these women but I didn’t find this book as exciting or inspiring as the subject matter should be. On the market for between €5mn and €7mn, the property consists of the original ruined 12th-century castle and the inhabitable Castel Nuovo. Fixed windows perforate the upper volume catching the south-west sun and framing the views to the north-east. The book covers the lives of 4 Italian women during the German occupation during WWII from 1943 to after 1945.It wasn't until I listened to the audiobook of Mark Sullivan's Beneath a Scarlet Sky that I gave much thought to the Italian Resistance during World War II.
