Orticolario invites you to explore one of the most famous Villas on Lake Como as never before.
On the digital platform “The Origin”, exclusively for Orticolario, Anna Gastel, Luchino Visconti’s niece, will guide you through the story of the Villa and the director’s family, while “strolling” room after room, up to the dungeons and the park. Among curiosities and special contents. So you can breathe moments of life really lived by the young Luchino, still far from his fame: for example while he was climbing the plane tree next to the pier or when he sought in vain attention from his father immersed in reading.
Created thanks to the contribution of Banca Generali Private (bancageneraliprivate.it), LarioIN (larioin.it) and KPMG (home.kpmg), the project reveals the most authentic essence of the Villa in a sincere and passionate way. And it is also available in English, with the story of Anna Gastel played by an actor. A unique experience that can fulfil, in any part of the world, the desire to know the story of a family intertwined with that of a house that is its theatre and co-star. The landscape and architecture of one of the most famous villas on Lake Como join the story, where every year, since 2009, Orticolario, the event dedicated to those who experience nature as a lifestyle, has been held.
