Park of Villa Serbelloni
The Park of Villa Serbelloni extends on the steep promontory that separates the two branches of the lake, where, according to tradition, Pliny the Younger owned a villa called Tragoedia.
The original layout of the villa dates back to 1400 and was built at the behest of Marchesino Stanga, feudal lord of the place. In 1788 it passed to Count Alessandro Serbelloni, an exponent of one of the noblest and richest families in Lombardy, who dedicated himself to it, concentrating above all on the creation of the immense external park, where he built carriageable tracks, paths and paths for a total length of about 18 km. At the death of the count, the villa passed from property to property and, at the end of the 19th century, it was transformed into a hotel. The complex was later acquired by the American Ella Walker, Princess Della Torre e Tasso, who decided to live there again, donating it to the Rockefeller Foundation after her death. Today the villa is the seat of conferences and study stays of the Foundation.
