Unique / Key Features

Except the different entrances (called Capri, Sorrento, Amalfi, Positano and Ischia, plus the security outputs), the complex is almost invisible as an architectural work because the shells are covered with soil where the lawn and low vegetation increase the harmony with the surrounding landscape, concealing the structure. This is an example of eco-oriented building.
