The first image of the second section, 'Il cortile interno' (the inner courtyard) reads
"In this Piedmontese villa, the harmony of the climbing vine, potted plants and flowers create a perfect example of an inner courtyard. It's a solution well suited for those wanting a discrete place to enjoy a cup of coffee after lunch or a well-deserved rest away form prying eyes."
In addition (they don't mention this) this courtyard provides natural lighting to walkway between the living area and the bedrooms and, in summer, a lovely breeze to cool the house.
Beautiful and functional.
