Villa Bernasconi is one of the most precious examples of art nouveau in Italy. It is owned by the town of Cernobbio and is now a cultural center hosting exhibitions and events. It was built before 1905 in Cernobbio, not directly on the lake but not far from the textile factory of the customer Davide Bernasconi. The decoration of the villa is inspired by the textile industry with forms of butterflies and silk worms. A recent resolution passed unanimously will make the villa also available for wedding functions which should make it a popular setting for newlyweds.
