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.
Originally, the garden was formal, composed by an orthogonal avenues system and decorated with statues, with a central circular roundabout and surrounded by farmland.
It was thanks to the nineteenth-century architect Simone Cantoni, very important figure in the local scene of the time, that the park radically changed its appearance and its formal scheme was replaced by a landscaping and romantic appearance, as the fashion of time required.
The park then welcomed a natural forest, artificial grotto, temples and ruins. Movements of land, a pond with pier and small hill on this viewpoint were also created to create a romantic atmosphere.
Duke Gian Ludovico Sola Cabiati donated his garden to the City of Gorgonzola in 1967, which was then named after him. The working process to convert the garden to a public use saw the introduction of a game area for children and the construction of a small zoo, now disappeared.
In 2007, the last intervent on the park offers some new introductions, including a training circuit, and reviews the relationship of the park with the adjacent wooded promenade and its play areas.
