The hystory of Villa Serbelloni

The villa was built in the 15th century for Marchesino Stanga.
It was modified in the 16th century by the Sfondrati family and passed in the late 18th century into the hands of the Serbelloni Dukes, who left the building intact, but extended the magnificent grounds.
The Park is owned by the Rockefeller Foundation which has kindly given permission to the Municipality of Bellagio to organize guided tours.
The proceeds from the visits are used for social and cultural activities.These stretch over the high part of the promontory of Bellagio, with over 18 km of avenues and paths that allow the visitor to admire the large quantity of plants, including rare and exotic plants, which grow on the terraces sloping down towards the lake. Splendid views of the Como and Lecco branches of the Lake from the XVIII century garden as well as views of the lake’s northern branch and the Pre-Alps from the remains of the fortification on the top of the promontory
The villa has hosted many illustrious figures: Leonardo da Vinici, Emperor Maximillian I, Silvio Pellico, Queen Victoria, Manzoni and Parini, who spent a great deal of time here as a tutor to the Duke’s sons.
Today Villa Serbelloni belongs to the Rockefeller Foundation and offers hospitality to artists, practitioners and scholars from all over the world.
