Let's discover them together!
Villa Parravicini Revel
Villa Parravicini Revel is a majestic neoclassical style villa overlooking the shore of Lake Como.

Documents already reveal the presence of the La Torre family from Rezzonico here in the mid-1700s.
The knight Aurelio Rezzonico died in 1816, leaving his son Alessandro, a minor, an inheritance weighed down with debts and mortgages. Duchess Maria Visconti di Modrone became the next owner.
Parco Sola Cabiati
The Sola Cabiati Park is an historical garden dating back to the Sixteenth century, located in the town of Gorgonzola, in the Milan hinterland.
The garden, now a public park, is the result of evolution of the historical landscape of the city.

Its creation is due to the Serbelloni family. It was in fact Gabrio Serbelloni to start the building of a country house on the family possessions.

Villa Annoni Park
The centuries-old park of Villa Annoni was probably outlined by Zanoia himself, although the current form was defined over the following years.
The 23 hectares wide park landscape, is organized into two main areas: on the right side, developing a charming ‘English' garden, while on the left is a later created “Italian” one.
Villa Grock
Villa Grock is a little ''gem'' on Imperiesi hills, where lived the famous clown Adrien Wettach, famous like ''Grock'' in the years 1930-1960.

After a long period of decline Villa Grock, in 2002, it was acquired by the Provincia di Imperia and returned to its former glory. The recovery of the spaces, in full respect of the original features, it has once again revealed the sophisticated opulence.
Villa Ormond Park
Villa Ormond Park in Sanremo juts out austerely but with luminosity towards the sea, embellishing the villa for over a century.
It was commissioned in the second half of the nineteenth century by Michel Louis Ormond, a Swiss businessman, as a place to meet or rest, or for festive ceremonies, a setting for memories, like a picture postcard in the time of patrons and travellers. It is now available to everyone, and reveals the harmonious synthesis of experience and aesthetic taste of botanists, agronomists and landscape designers who planted collections of palms, trees and shrubs from every continent here in a skilful blend of shapes and colours.
Parco delle Terme di Levico Terme
With its thirteen hectares of parkland and around 570 majestic trees, Levico Spa Park is the most important historic park in the province of Trento. Its history dates back to the end of the 19th century and is closely linked to the establishment of Lévico Terme as a spa town of European standing.

The project drawn up by the German landscape gardener Georg Ziehl (1873 - 1953) transformed an area of countryside where a large hotel was sited, together with its accompanying treatment centres, into an extensive parkland site enhanced by a range of tree species; a Kurort combing spa treatments with walks, heliotherapy and relaxation.
Giardino della Rosa
In Ronzone, in the upper Val di Non, there is a garden offering extensive displays of different types of rose, the flower representing the most widely used plant in gardens throughout the western hemisphere, now as in the past.

The area around the rose garden, in the midst of the meadows of the upper Val di Non and in a particularly fortunate position due to the favourable exposure on a gentle well-ventilated slope without pockets of humidity, now houses a botanical collection of both bushy and climbing species of roses. It is a place focusing on beauty, offering a contrast to the large areas of countryside dedicated to the cultivation of apples.

Casa Cuseni
Casa Cuseni was built in the early 1900s in the hilly part of Taormina, by the English painter Robert Kitson, quickly to become an International Art Centre.

Von Gloeden, Alfred East, Albert Liberty, Charles Ashbee, Cecil Hunt, Frank Brangwyn, Charles Baskerville, Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dalì, Henry Moore and Ezra Pound are just some of the many artists who left their work here.

Amongst its collections the house contains paintings witnessing the English Grand Tour in Sicily and the East as well as a famous dining-room, now unique in the world, by Sir Frank Brangwyn, one of the first L.C. Tiffany decorators. The artist also designed the villa garden, “borrowing” views and the landscape as decorative elements, creating an harmonious continuum with Mount Etna and the Gulf of Naxos.
