A handsome villa sitting on the coast of Cape Town, Casa Labia was built in the year 1930 by native architect Fred Glennie. This villa was home to the Italian delegate to Cape Town, Count Natale Labia and his South African partner. Beautifully designed by an interior decorator from Venice, the sight is now host to major cultural events which include concerts, lectures and exhibitions. Currently owned by Labia’s son, this cultural centre has also held very famous art exhibitions by hosting works of Irma Stern and Gerald Sekoto. In its premises is also present an African Nova arts and crafts shop.
