Villa Cicogna Mozzoni

Where
Villa Cicogna Mozzoni
Viale Cicogna 8, Bisuschio (VA)

The estate of Villa Cicogna Mozzoni in Bisuschio was designed and built during the Renaissance, and the descendents of the Cicogna Mozzoni family still care for the house and grounds to this day.

The garden is open to the public as are twelve rooms which are fully decorated with frescoes and furnished with pieces and items from many different periods.

The villa also hosts concerts, exhibitions and cultural events, and its rooms can be hired for wedding receptions, gala dinners, filming and photoshoots.


Villa Cicogna Mozzoni is one of the most exquisite examples of Renaissance art in Lombardy.

This is a perfect example of the “pleasure villas” so popular in Italy during the 16th century, with its long tree-lined drive leading up to a forecourt, its beautifully manicured flowerbeds, and the villa itself built in a traditional “U” shape and overlooking a courtyard nestled between two rows of Greek Doric columns in Viggiù stone and a red porphyry pavement which opens onto the Italian style gardens.

Visitors can imagine life in the magnificent ballrooms with their frescoes, the grand entrance, the bedrooms with their four poster beds and coffered ceilings. The library is one of the most interesting rooms in the building, a place where jesters and minstrels would entertain guests with music, singing and dancing or reciting poetry in honour of the villa’s illustrious owners.

The grandiose ballroom, with its magnificent fireplace, accesses a “secret garden”, hidden away on the north side of the property.
