Villa Litta


Villa Borromeo Visconti Litta, villa of delights in which art, history and recreation leave the visitor enchanted by the beauty of the variety of mosaics, statues, frescoes, fountains and water features. Was the Count Pirro I Visconti Borromeo - around 1585 - to study the complex inspired by the Tuscan Medici villas and transform the Lainate properties in one place, thanks to the exceptional craftsmen such as the architect Martino Bassi, sculptors Francesco Brambilla the young Marco Antonio Prestinari, painters Camillo Procaccini and Pier Francesco Mazzucchelli known as Morazzone, Loyola Agostino and Giovanni Battista Masters, said Spitz. The Count did make the gardens and build the Palazzo delle Acque, more commonly known as Nymphaeum. The house became the scene of great parties and receptions, but also an important meeting place for artists and intellectuals. The Nymph is a place of great charm and - because of the wealth of decorations and hydraulic performances - is considered the most important and significant example of the genre, especially since - a very rare thing - it works, today, just as then, thanks to sophisticated hydraulic mechanisms governed by skilled plumbers.
