“Alessandro Manzoni owned this villa until 1818 and it was here he drew the inspiration for his Hymns, Adelchi, and The Betrothed to immortalise our places, our customs, our stories and himself”.

The inscription added by the Scola family after they bought the property from the Manzoni family informs visitors of what awaits them inside. This was Alessandro Manzoni’s family home, where he spent his childhood and youth.

At the centre of the Neoclassical villa is a beautiful garden, somewhat reduced in size by subsequent additions and surrounded by a portico of sandstone columns. The rooms on the ground floor are still furnished as they were in 1818, when Manzoni sold the villa.

Today the villa houses both a museum, where visitors can admire manuscripts, first editions and memorabilia belonging to the writer, and an art gallery with a collection of artwork by local painters, in particular the works of Ennio Morlotti, originally from Lecco, deceased in 1992.
