VILLA DEL GRUMELLO

COMO

Maintenance and renovation

Villa Grumello, also known as Villa Celesia is one of the historic Villas facing Lake Como.
It rises along the road that leads from Como to the nearby Cernobbio.
The villa was reconstructed in the second half of the XVI century, and became one of the main summer residences on the shores of Lake Como. Over the course of centuries, various owners succeeded each other and often subjected the villa to restorations: at the end of the XVIII century, the façade was sorted-out, and two lateral wings were designed.
Between the XVIII and XIX centuries, the gatehouse and the stable were built. In 1870, the villa was, once again, subjected to restoration by architect Nessi, who raised the central body by one floor. In the same period, a small greenhouse facing the lake was inserted in the park. In 1954, Countess Giulia Celesia Cays donated the villa and park to the Ospedale Sant’Anna of Como to be used as a rest home and, later from 1970 to 2000, it housed the style and design department of silk producers Ratti.
In 2006, the Association Villa del Grumello was founded, and restoration of the villa was begun, transforming it into a location of cultural and scientific initiatives and a small hostel.
