The two curious constructions (Casa de Maria and Casa Pusinich) are clearly architectural “loans” from Nordic European culture that, with a considerable film-set like effect, make these little buildings real cameos in the context in which they are situated. The two small villas were constructed in the years 1914-15 by painter Mario de Maria, better known as “Marius Pictor”. He chose Asolo to live in and it was here that he decided to be buried: it was his friend D’Annunzio who dictated the epigraph on the commemorative plaque placed on the front of his house in 1924 and it is still visible today. It must not however be forgotten that one of the two houses was the residence of poet and man of letters Guido Pusinich.
