Villa Melzi d'Eril

Villa Melzi is a residential villa belonging to the Melzi family that looks out onto the River Adda

Where
Piazza Leonardo da Vinci, Vaprio d'Adda (MI)

The villa looks out onto the Adda with its terraced garden. The building’s current appearance is the result of the numerous changes made in 1845, but it was originally built in the 15th century before being expanded in the 17th century.

It was originally commissioned by Giovanni Melzi, of Milanese descent, taking advantage of the ruins of a pre-existing castle. The villa hosted Leonardo da Vinci between 1506 and 1507 and once again in 1510 and 1513. Lots of his notes and works remained there including, it is thought, a large fresco on the top floor of a Madonna and Child (it is believed to have been frescoed by Francesco Melzi according to Leonardo’s design).

It is currently private property.
