Villa Girasole, Italy: the Oldest ROTATING House Follows the Path of the Sun

Villa Girasole, Italy: the Oldest ROTATING House Follows the Path of the Sun | MAZAMORRA en morada | Scoop.it

Villa Girasole is the oldest rotating house in the world designed by a local navy engineer, Angelo Invernizzi. Situated near Verona, Italy, the house follows the path of the sun in a circular motion. Translated from Italian, the word girasole means sunflower. an appropriate name for the house which follows the sun.

The idea behind the creation of the first-of-its-kind rotating house is simple – to harness solar energy. Modern buildings use solar panels to transform it into energy.

The ambitious project took six years from 1929 to 1935, and its unique design, innovative for the era, required the use of advanced technologies.
