Burano's Jazziest House

Casa di Bepi  Suà, Burano
The island of Burano is famous the world over for its brightly coloured houses, but one house, in particular, stands out as being a little jazzier than the rest. 

The Casa di Bepi Suà was once the home of Giuseppe Toselli (1920-2002), an amateur artist, who was not content, like his neighbours, to paint his house a single colour. This Buranello went one step further and covered his small abode with brightly coloured geometric shapes, which, moreover, he was constantly changing. 

I was on the island the other day and couldn't help noticing that Burano's jazziest house was in need of a little TLC.
