The Bertone Park
Today visitors can use the many paths and walkways to explore the villa’s grounds and admire the lake and the rich vegetation
The Bertone Park is located near Goito, in the province of Mantua. The whole area used to belong to the De Bertoni family, next to the Gonzaga family lands.
After changing hands several times, the estate was bought by the D’Arco family who, at the end of the 19th century, built a villa, with stables and a guesthouse which was to serve as their summer residence.
Today visitors can use the many paths and walkways to explore the villa’s grounds and admire the lake and the rich vegetation of the English style garden with local and exotic plants, in the fashion of the 19th century.
The park is also home to the Centre for the Reintroduction of White Storks which takes care of a colony of birds which are initially reared in special aviaries and later set free.
Most of the time the storks prefer to stay in the park and make their nests on the trees present in the park.
