'Taormina Cult' unveils Casa Cuseni's secret treasures

Aug 18, 2018 1704

Casa Cuseni is a house in Taormina rich in history and secrets, including frescoes of a homosexual love story it hid for over a century. Greta Garbo, Coco Chanel, Pablo Picasso, Bertrand Russell and Roald Dahl all stayed at the home built in 1905 by British painter Robert Hawthorn Kitson, the son of a very rich industrialist in Leeds.
