Nestled amongst the stunning Southern hills of Lake Garda, in the heart of the historical centre of Lonato, lies the home of the Ugo Da Como Foundation: La Rocca Visconteo Veneta. This imposing structure once belonged to a senator from nearby Brescia, Ugo Da Como (1869-1941), who wished to create a ‘city of culture’ within these peaceful surroundings.
The Casa del Podestà is furnished to reflect the opulent Italian style of the 900’s.
An evocative visit takes you through the furnished rooms of the Museum, home also to a stunning library filled with a precious ancient book collection.
The house is surrounded by splendid private gardens and the last step of the visit takes you up to the Visconti-Venetian fortress, La Rocca Visconteo Veneta, admired by Napoleon himself, and from whose imposing bastions you can enjoy an amazing panorama of Lake Garda.
