Parks & nature in Province of Lecco

Park
“The Gardens of Villa Melzi strech out along the lake shore and are armoniously inserted into the hilly scenery of the Bellagio peninsula that divides the two branches of Como (Lario) lake. Inland, the Villa, the Chapel and the orangery, today transformed into a historical museum, are splendid expression of neo-classical style and as such stated national monument. This architectural complex was realized between 1808 and 1810 for Francesco Melzi d'Eril, Duke of Lodi, Vice President of Italian Republic under Napoleon and afterwards Gran Chancellor of the Napoleonic Reign of Italy. Francesco Melzi d'Eril relied upon the architect and decorator Giocondo Albertolli, an architect of great importance during the neo-classicism. The Villa that became the Melzi's residence at the end of his political career and afterwards his summer residence until his death was decorated and furnished by some of the most famous artists. The English styled gardens, enriched with sculptures, was designed by the architect Luigi Canonica and by the botanist Luigi Villoresi, both responsible for the arrangement of Villa Reale park in Monza. Through the contribution of great artists and artisans and the special concordance between them and Francesco Melzi the whole complex was shaped like a place of rare harmony and was admired, among the others, by Stendhal who described its beauty in his book "Rome, Naples, Florence". ”

“The beautiful little hilltop village of Montevecchia is about 20 minutes from Poggio Verde. Walking on past Montevecchia along the Via Alta Collina is a tiny cheese shop in a farmstead and a little further is a ridge with stunning views. Next to Montevecchia Alta lies the Val Curone park: a natural reserve rich in flora and fauna with many walks of varying lengths and difficulty, and a winery with excellent white and red choices of the region.”
