Locals refer to this as Pinocchio's house. It's very cute to see, take a picture and leave. Most of the time you are unable to get inside. It's really more of a photo opt stop.

.In the lake Fusaro in Bacoli, in a green park on the lake, this eighteenth-century building appears suspended in the lake. To get there you take a bridge, it is a very romantic place.
