VILLA ERBA: HISTORICAL NOTES
The historic Villa Erba was once a monastery, then it was bought by the Peluso family.
Later he became property of Luigi Erba, piano teacher at the Milan Conservatory, brother and heir of Carlo Erba, one of the leading industrialists in the pharmaceutical industry of the time.
Villa Erba hosts great artists and the residence was the protagonist of an intense cultural and world life.
Later the Villa was inherited by his daughter Carla Erba, mother of the great director Luchino Visconti.
Since the end of the last century, the residence is home to a public-private exhibition and exhibition center.
For seven years, it has hosted – just as a location – the headquarters of the Grandi Giardini Italiani network.
A unique location, between the green of nature and the blue of Lake Como, for a spectacular effect of great impact.
Surely the Park of Villa Erba is worth a visit!
