VILLA MONASTERO

7 Febbraio 2022

Today we’ll talk about Villa Monastero, a stunning wedding venue on the eastern shore of lake Como owned by the province of Lecco.

It is one of the main historical, cultural and environmental sites of the area, and it is also a museum and a conference centre.

The name of this marvellous villa derives from its monastic origins as a convent dating back to the 12th century. From 1500 onwards, after the convent was dissolved, it was owned by various Italian noble families. During the centuries it became an international cultural and scientific center and in 2003 it was declared as a protected museum.

It can be admired today in its present aspect of a late nineteenth century eclectic home.

There is also a world-famous Congress Centre in this historic home, renowned for the physics lessons held in 1954 by the Nobel prize-winner Enrico Fermi. The Italian Physics Society still organizes courses in Villa Monastero every year, and along the years more than 60 Nobel Prize Winners partecipated as lecturers or directors. 

The villa stands in a magnificent park where citrus, cypresses, pine trees and agaves grow and stretches over for 2 kilometers along the lake from Varenna to Fiumelatte.

Statues and bas-reliefs can be admired along the paths among the numerous Mediterranean and tropical plants.

The Garden attracts about 100.000 visitors every year, thanks to the presence of numerous rare species of indigenous and exotic trees which now remarkably number more than 900 specimens, earning it the regional recognition of Botanical Garden.

The richness of the interior of the Villa and the exterior of the Botanical Garden will offer you the most suitable setting for an unforgettable ceremony.

The Garden is also a perfect location for photoshoots.

Here are some wedding moments, captured in the most beautiful corners of Villa Monastero.

VILLA PIZZO

27 Gennaio 2022

Here is a brief introduction of Villa Pizzo, one of the most romantic and suggestive wedding venues of the Lake Como area.

Villa Pizzo was built between the charming villages of Cernobbio and Moltrasio. It dates back to 1435, when Giovanni Muggiasca, a merchant of Como, acquired a vast land that was rich in vineyards and olive groves, not far from town, stretching from the shore of the lake till the peak of the hills, crossing Via Regina, the main road serving the entire Lake Como.

Its pink and sun-bleached peach facade make it one of the prettiest villas in the area. This is why it was often chosen by Hollywood’s couples for their dream wedding.

The residence of Villa Pizzo is known for its elegance and the particularly romantic panorama that can be enjoyed from its unique terrace facing the lake. From here, in fact, it is possible to admire a large part of Lake Como from a privileged position. It is an ideal venue to host wedding receptions with many guests, up to 200.

Even inside, the villa has several large halls, frescoed and decorated in Neoclassical style, perfect for beautiful banquets. It is also possible to stay overnight in the villa, which has suites, rooms and some private apartments.

There is also an even larger park, dotted with every kind of exotic plants, and a “Cypress’ Avenue” which ends in an artificial cave with water.

Another botanical jewel of Villa Pizzo is the ancient greenhouse, for the cultivation of spices and citrus. When lit up at night, it really is a fascinating sight.
