Frank Lloyd Wright house may be shipped to Italy

A Frank Lloyd Wright-designed home in New Jersey could soon find a new home in Italy.

According to dezeen.com, the owners of the home, Sharon and Lawrence Tarantino, are considering moving the home to protect it from flood damage.

“We have been here 25 years and over the past couple of years the flooding has become worse. We have to do what is best for the house,” Sharon Tarantino told the Daily Telegraph.

Should the house be shipped to Italy, it may not be used as a home due to planning restrictions. Instead, it could be treated as a sculpture and placed in a park or garden.

Wright lived in Italy in 1910 and visited several more times. He designed numerous buildings, including several in Arizona.
