Overview
More
Established before 1440 as a hunting lodge of the Mozzoni family, it was subsequently embellished and completed between 1530 and 1559 with fresco wall paintings. The garden was established by Ascanio Mozzoni, a man of great culture who brought back from his travels cues for the arrangement over the seven levels gardens. The most pleasant characteristic of the Villa is its merging with the garden. Almost as if nature, through its vineyard sprouts and flower wreaths, intended to invade the fresco painted ceiling of the porticoes. One can admire the two-flight stairway with a brook running in-between which leads directly to the halls of the Villa and also enjoy from above the sight of the beautiful panorama. The walled-in garden is a typical example of formal Italian garden with box hedges, water basins, fountains and a grotto with remarkable waterworks. Climbing towards the belvedere a more naturalistic romantic park follows. Open on Sundays from April to October.

I love water playing in gardens. it balances hedges, lawns and the hunting lodge. It entertains and surprises, while the femme clicks away shooting a putto gambolling under the spray from a dolphin's mouth. The house and garden merge seamlessly in the arcaded loggia with...More
