Between 1911 and 1913, Villa Pierina was the island home of Russian revolutionary Maxim Gorky and his companion Maria Fyodorovna Andreyeva; the writing desk he used is still in the main bedroom on the first floor. During his stay in Capri, Gorky received a number of Russian intellectuals, including Lenin, who slept in the villa.

On the highest level, there is a living and dining area, the middle level houses a gazebo-covered lounging area, and the lowest level hosts a large sundeck. There is a separate area with an outdoor shower.
The garden is furnished with decorations in wrought iron, historic balustrades in piperno stone, glass-topped tables, and marble benches covered in traditional Neapolitan majolica tiles handpainted in one-of-a-kind designs.
