The charme of history for your destination wedding on Lake Como
This villa was built by Cardinal Tolomeo Gallio at the end of the 16th century, after the drawings of Pellegrino Tibaldi, and the first ownership of the Villa was the prestigious Giovio family, householders that used it as their residence.
There are traces of description of the property in 1537, but a great renovation started nearly a century later, in 1637, with Abbot Marco Gallio who started to radically restore the property, proposing a modern design of the main façade, enhancing it with lavishly decorated portals and creating the Italian garden.
The indoor rooms have been decorated with precious and prestigious frescoes by the Recchi brothers and stuccos by Agostino Silva.
This project was followed and finally completed by Marquis Giacomo Gallio, in 1680.
The villa has lived another renovation in 1778, when other important frescoes by Giuseppe Porro and Giovani Antonio Torricelli have gone to enrich the artistic merit.
Then later on, in 1787, it has been acquired by Cardinal Angelo Maria Durini, papal nuncio, a great collector and patron of arts in love with Lake Como who enlarged and embellished additionally the property with statues and fountains, creating also new avenues between hedges and pergolas.
As they used to do in the late 18th century, when the Villa hosted gallant and frivolous festivals, banquets and dances, you could enjoy the beauty of the lake, the prestige of the atmosphere and the comfort of a luxury treatment!
