Villa Pesenti Agliardi in Bergamo
Located at the foot of the hills, ten kilometers from Bergamo, the seventeenth century Villa Pesenti-Agliardi was expanded and modified in 1798, on behalf of the Count Pietro Pesenti, by the architect Leopold Pollack, with an innovative project of neoclassical reinterpretation of both the dwelling and the garden.
In Pollack's drawings, still kept in the villa, the theme of the garden enriched by significant monuments, intended to delight the host and guests is inspired by the purposes of this dwelling, symbolically displayed by statues placed in niches on the heads of the wings: theAgriculture and l 'Hospitality.
The project was not built in its entirety and the garden was subsequently reinterpreted in a romantic key.
In the villa you can admire the chapel, the monumental staircase, decorated rooms with remarkable frescoes e stucco.
After the premature death in the 1826 of Pietro Presenti, the villa came to the niece Marianna Agliardi.
