Ana Mosqueda is an important figure of Casa Cavia. A literature laureate, independent researcher and owner of the publishing house Ampersand Publishers which resides on the first floor “Ana wanted the place to be a meeting point for an exchange of ideas as it was the case for publishing houses at the turn of the last century”. “It was around this concept that Casa Cavia was born” says Lupe Garcia. Ms. Mosqueda offers visitors the possibility to browse through a variety of books, including children’s books, art catalogues and illustrations, as well as managing the dreamiest corner of the villa, the reading room and bookshop where books hang from the ceiling as if flying above the readers.
Casa Cavia offers a variety of refined pleasures, from books to perfumes, flowers to cocktails, a reminder of senses and how to satisfy them without guilt. On the prawl for new and brilliant Argentinian creativity and trends.
