Villa Giulia Bellagio

Comments

To reach this private villa, you must walk a stone staircase, the so-called 'Scalotta', from the docks of Loppia (near Bellagio) alongside Villa Melzi, with eight hundred steps that leads up to an Italian garden with fountain. The roof is decorated with a garland to the railing with stone ornaments. The building, with three floors, was built in neoclassical style structure with a sober and balanced, with the main floor with large windows, gabled. From the main body, with the lower range ashlar, depart two wings whose decorations reproduce the architectural motifs of the main core. The villa overlooks both branches of the lake with an effect of double perspective that was made possible by impressive work.
