According to Georgios A. Panetsos, [Curzio] Malaparte saw the gypsum model of the Kyriakides house in Kontoleon’s studio during one of his visits to Athens during the 1930’s. Malaparte was a frequent traveller to Athens as the Corriere correspondent, but also as the friend of Galeazzo Ciano (Mussolini’s son-in-law, minister of press and propaganda and, subsequently, of foreign affairs) and, later, personal envoy to Emmanuele Grazzi, the Italian ambassador to Greece.
