MYSTERIOUS TINY ROOMS BY MARC GIAI-MINIET
French artist Marc Giai-Miniet (Born in 1946 in Trappes) makes some of the most incredibly detailed (and disturbing!) dollhouses that we’ve ever seen. Marc started creating these disturbing shadowbox dioramas rather late in his career, recurring themes include libraries, furnaces, laboratories, submarines and intestine-like tubing in lonely, decaying spaces.

Built in 1907 by Nicholas Zanelli, situated in a large garden in direct communication with the sea, until 1933 belonged to the family of Zanelli, and then sold to the municipality of Milan, which transformed it into camp and international colony and during WWII, as a field hospital.
It is currently in a state of neglect.
