Villa Scott, Turin, Italy

Villa Scott was built in 1902 by Pietro Fenoglio who was born in Torino. This villa is linked to the name of Dario Argento who set his disturbing film “Profondo Rosso” (Deep Red) here. Of his films, this is probably the one that has the most emotional impact as well as having the strongest visual effects. This small villa somewhat in decay was built at the foot of the hills of Torino, and is one of the most significant examples of Liberty architecture. It is located not far from what used to be Giovanni Pastrone’s house, who was one of the pioneers of cinema in Torino in the first years of the past century. A sinuous flight of steps leads to the entrance from the garden that surrounds the villa. Villa Scott is rich in floral concrete and wrought decorations, and is at present unoccupied, whereas when “Profondo Rosso” (Deep Red) was filmed it housed a girl’s boarding school run by nuns.

It's a common mistake, but it is Art Nouveau, aka Arte Floriale in Italy, and you can see why. They are pretty good examples however!

Expert opinion needed

The style of the buildings below we usually call here in Post-Soviet countries as "Stalin's Empire style".
But there is opinion (and my personal feeling) that the style of these specific buildings is closer to Art Deco than to Empire style.

What do you think guys?

The shape of Stalinist buildings can possibly be regarded as Art Deco, e.g. the main building of the Lomonosov University in Moscow.

But the ornamentation is definitely Neoclassical.
