Lecco: that branch of the lake of Como

Where
Lungolario Isonzo, 9, 23900 Lecco

The beginning of The Betrothed is a beautiful photography of Lecco and its surrounding territory, told with harmonious gracefulness by the author that made it famous all over the world: Alessandro Manzoni.

It almost seems that the writer viewed it from the lake and then from above, because he outlines precisely the natural conformation of Lecco. A lake with a succession of bays and gulfs, framed by mountain ranges protecting the town: San Martino, Resegone, with its unmistakable profile as a saw and the three streams cutting Lecco in three parts. A lake which narrows and re-become the Adda river, whose shores in Lecco are joined by the bridge Azzone Visconti. All around the slopes, hills, fields and vineyards with farmhouses and villas and woods that hug the mountains.

A marvelous image of Lecco, about which Manzoni said: “a country I would call one of the most beautiful in the world!
