Lake Como Waves 2019

Lake Como Waves 2019

In the fascinating setting of Villa Erba in Cernobbio Saturday 7th September Lake Como Waves – water currents, a day open to everyone for entertainment, discussion and reflection on the theme of water.

From 2.30 pm to 1.00 am water will be the protagonist, in its many forms: shows, creative workshops, conversations, exhibitions, interactive and multimedia installations will enliven the rooms on the ground floor of the historic Villa, the dock with a beautiful floating stage and the magnificent park overlooking the lake, offering visitors a unique experience.

Spontaneous resource, source of life and development: on this day, it will be possible to rediscover the awareness, often lost, of the most important of the elements: water.

Water is told, scanned, analyzed and experienced for all, adults and children.

During the day you can relax with drinks and snacks overlooking the lake and enjoy the program rich in events.
