Villa Gallia Como

Comments

Built for the Abbot Marco Gallio on the site of Paolo Giovio's sixteenth-century villa called "The Museum", it dates back to the beginning of the seventeenth century. It has a simple layout, with two loggias on the ground floor, one facing the lake and the other facing the mountain. The architect who designed the villa remains unknown as do the artists who painted the frescoes in the hall although they have been attributed to the Recchi brothers and Isidoro Bianchi. It is currently the head quarters of the province of Como's government offices.
