It’s called the “smallest home in Italy.” Down an old alleyway in Rome, the cubbyhole apartment started off looking more like a hovel than a luxury home. But all it required was an architect with imagination and the help of some renovation experts to convert it into a charming, if not exactly spacious, residence.
