A project never realized before for this mansion

Exclusively for Orticolario, Anna Gastel, Luchino Visconti’s niece, will guide you through the history of the Villa and the director’s family, while “strolling” in the rooms and following a numbered itinerary among new historical and architectural curiosities and archive images.

One of the historic residences of Lake Como, it is located in the “Villa Erba” exhibition and congress centre, where every year since 2009 Orticolario takes place.
Built between 1898 and 1900, it is in an entirely flat garden, a rarity in this area, based on the masses, volumes and colours offered by groups of monumental trees.
