Villino Vellutini-Vannucci, togheter with some other buildingds built on the local Viareggio Promenade, represents a model of high class liberty art deco style palazzo. The years just before the Second World War represented for Viareggio an important period for house building activies and the most beautiful local villas were built just behind the boulevard and the sea front view hotels. Gran Caffè Margherita was attended by the most elegant and rich italian artists and aristocratics: from Giacomo Puccini to Margherita Sarfatti, from Toscanini to Pirandello. Galileo Chini was part of the artistic mileu. He owned a prestigious ceramic manufacturer company in Campi Bisenzio. His manufacturer company designed and supplied all the famous ceramic artistic pieces which tourist can appreciate and look on the most refined local art deco building as Gran Caffe Margherita, Villa Argentina, Bagno Bertuccelli, Caffè Liberty, Villino Gori, Villino Vellutini-Vannucci and many others local refined villa front building.
