This villa can be considered one of the finest jewels adorning the lake of Como.
Besides its breathtaking vista, this mansion offers to the visitors beautiful statues, white marble columns and a flourishing garden. It was designed and built according to its particular position, on the top of a hill which overhangs the lake’s dock.
Its exteriors are a perfect mix of Liberty and Eclecticism. All the rooms are open, large and luminous and reflect the Liberty architecture in every detail.
Its first stone was set in 1897 and the whole building was finished in 1910. The owner of this mansion wanted to dedicate a porch to his friends and made inscribe a little poem on each column. The wonderful statues that adorn the villa were created by an artist who wanted to represent in his work the “three life consoling arts” (i.d. literature, music and sculpture). The Cardoon-thistle, symbol of the villa, represents a spirit at the same time as strong and stinging on the outside as tender and soft on the inside.
