The 1900s live in Casa Cuseni

Step into Casa Cuseni, an early-1900s museum and B&B in Taormina, and you will feel like you are diving into the wonderful mesh of 20th-century stories that played out in its rooms.

English Nobel prize Bertrand Russell often stayed here, and finished one of his most important works, “A History of Western Philosophy” while enjoying the view over Mount Etna and the Gulf of Naxos.

Other notable guests include Tennessee Williams, Greta Garbo, Pablo Picasso, Roald Dahl, André Gide, Roger Peyrefitte, Denis Mack Smith: invited by British painter Robert Hawthorn Kitson and his niece Daphne Phelps, they contributed to bringing this special place to life with a coterie of artists from the whole world.

Casa Cuseni is now an Italian National Monument, and includes a museum with a permanent collection of works by great artists such as Henry Moore, Frank William Brangwyn and Pablo Picasso.
