Villa Manzoni

Discover the Manzoni residence and family home from 1615 to 1818

Where
Villa Manzoni
Via Don Guanella, 1, Lecco

A tour of the places of The Betrothed can only start from Villa Manzoni, a building with a typically neoclassical structure, that was Manzoni family’s residence from 1615 to 1818, where Alessandro spent his childhood and youth before moving to Paris with his mother Giulia Beccaria.

 

Finally back in its splendour after years of partial closure for restoration work, the villa is not far from the centre of Lecco and is now a museum.

The Museo Manzoniano located there allows us to immerse ourselves in the rooms where the writer, with the view of the Lecco mountains and the flowing waters of the Adda river, found inspiration for his best-loved novel.

A museum itinerary that, thanks also to the contribution of new technologies, pays homage to The Betrothed in many different ways: from the writer's manuscripts to depictions of scenes from the book by various artists, from the portrait that Giuseppe Molteni painted for the writer to the series of prints depicting the Lecco area, from the last edition of The Betrothed illustrated by Gonin to the projection of Mario Bonnard's silent film of 1922 that can be enjoyed in the building's small cinema hall. 
 

Take me here: Villa Manzoni
