Erika Trojer, owner of the house, was a model, is a mother, wife and an artist.
She understands the power of material, to be appreciated not only with the eyes but also with touch and other sense too. She sees beauty in everything that is a scrap, waste, trash, but nevertheless, a material that has the capacity to tell its own story sometimes it's great accomplishments of the past.
This is what her pieces of art are about, saving scraps and bringing them back to life to communicate an aesthetic message, but also to tell stories of a work process, people and lives.
She has exhibited her art pieces in Italy, Europe and the United States.
Some of Erika's art pieces adorn Villa Torno, together with primitive art pieces collected by her husband Enzo.
