An exclusive experience of MI EXPERIENCE, to discover a place full of mysteries.


"The fact that everything has been preserved and remained unchanged over time gives a charm and creates a particular suggestion, making you perceive the soul of the house and of those who lived there."

 

A splendid visit to be enjoyed alone or with the whole family, in a perfectly preserved historic residence. A unicum not only of Lombardy, but of all of Italy.

 

You will be catapulted into an emotional journey of over 2000 years of history,  accompanied  from the engaging Narration of the Owner, Count Alberto Uva

 

An immersive experience in the past, in the rooms of the Dimora, unchanged over time and remained intact over the centuries. 

 

The tour will start from the fourteenth-century Chapel of S. Maria in Villa and will wind through the ancient living rooms fully furnished and full of furnishings and historical relics , the result of the owners' great passion for collecting.

 

The story, however, starts from further away: the first building sees its foundations on the ruins of a Roman "castrum" . The discovery of artifacts from the Roman era is interesting: a javelin point , a sling , a coin (Tiberian dipondio from 22 AD) and votive offerings.

 

Inside the Chapel another surprise: an urn containing the skull of a famous Marquis , with codes belonging to the Knights Templar and curious secrets still open.

 

We will admire the  columns with Celto-Etruscan writings, dating back to the 7th century BC, which adorn the magnificent entrance to the villa.

 

Going through  the wonderful park, adorned with over 100 lime trees and cedars, magnolias, badgers and  Sequoias, you will visit  period bedrooms , ancient kitchens and a precious private armory , where ancient weapons, flags, war instruments and banners from the 1700s to the Second World War are kept.

 

The suggestive narration  of the landlord , the curious anecdotes and objects in the collections will transport you on a journey through the centuries, with suggestive settings and still unsolved mysteries.

 

An exclusive guided tour,   discovering the seventeenth-century villa , among secret passages , Templar remains, Etruscan and Roman remains and frescoes from the 1400s.
