Villa Meier is the result of an extensive and progressive renovation project, designed by architect Pietro Lingeri, born in Tremezzo and one of the main leading exponents of rationalism in Como. He worked not only on the existing villa but he reconfigured the park by adding new buildings.
Currently you can only visit a part of the original property Meier. The area of the garden at the lake, which is the city park Teresio Olivelli with the monumental staircase and tarocchiera, and the area of the garden behind, owned by the parish in which there are Villa Ortensia, the kennel circular, the tennis court with the kiosk, and the wing with belvedere, are open to the public. The cottage, the greenhouse and the caretaker’s house remain private property.
