Located next to Villa d’Este, this villa is in the private hands of the Volpi-Bassani family. The gardens can be visited during the week by groups of ten or more. Villa Pizzo Cernobbio: Giovanni Muggiasca purchased the farmland on the Pizzo promontory in 1435 with the intention of building himself a home. Over the years, the subsequent extensions and additions have given the house and garden a particular shape with its terraces, fountain stairways and statues. An extensive network of paths cross at various levels through the park that extends along the coastline. The area in front of the various buildings is gracefully decorated with garlands of roses and trees.
