Villa Belinzaghi is located at the end of the famous "strettoia" of Cernobbio in the direction of Villa d'Este and is recognized as an architecture in "modern English" style with neoclassical inspirations.
From the symmetrical and linear lines, the property is developed on a very large area, characterized by an English garden full of tall trees, conifers and magnolias. The spaces of the villa are very simple; the only elements that give movement to the building are two small lateral wings. The will of the architect was in fact to create environments that were as functional as possible.
Overlooking the lake, it is equipped with a dock that has imposing protective walls.
Commissioned in the second half of 1800 by Giulio Belinzaghi, count, senator, banker and also mayor of Milan, it was designed by Giacomo Bussi. Between the end of the nineteenth century and the beginning of the twentieth century, the family used to organize parties and dances, attended by many prominent figures of the Milanese high society.
