Villa Vigoni

IT


Nel febbraio 1983 don Ignazio Vigoni lasciò in legato testamentario alla Repubblica Federale di Germania le sue proprietà di Loveno di Menaggio: terreni, rustici e due dimore ottocentesche: Villa Mylius Vigoni e Villa Garovaglio Ricci. Tre anni dopo nasceva Villa Vigoni, associazione italo-tedesca che organizza e ospita convegni, seminari, manifestazioni artistiche e bandisce borse di studio. Lo stupendo paesaggio, la bellezza e l’eleganza degli edifici, la storia delle famiglie che li hanno abitati, l’importanza e la varietà delle raccolte d’arte rendono questo centro uno dei più affascinanti d’Europa.Situata in una posizione meravigliosa, Villa Garovaglio Ricci offre una splendida vista sul lago di Como fino alla penisola di Bellagio. Il complesso risalente al secolo XVIII, ospitava in origine una filanda. Per un certo periodo di proprietà del compositore Francesco Pasquale Ricci (1732-1817), passò all’inizio del XIX secolo alla famiglia Garovaglio. Alfonso Garovaglio (1820-1905) archeologo di fama, trasformò la vecchia filanda in una prestigiosa residenza, divenuta nel giro di pochi anni un ricco museo grazie ai molti reperti che vi raccolse, oggi conservati presso il museo Giovio di Como. Frequentata a lungo da Antonio Fogazzaro, ispirò allo scrittore uno degli scenari del famoso romanzo “Piccolo mondo antico”. A villa Garovaglio Ricci un’ampia sala conferenze, progettata secondo i più moderni concetti, è il cuore di ogni iniziativa. Caratterizzata da un design all’avanguardia ha una perfetta acustica.

In February 1983 don Ignazio Vigoni Medici di Marignano, the last descendant of a renowned Italian-German family, which was heirless, left in inheritance his whole property at Loveno di Menaggio to the German Federal Republic. This property consisted of pieces of land, labourers’ cottages and two 19th century-villas: Villa Mylius Vigoni and Villa Garovaglio Ricci. In this place Germany and Italy decided to found and finance a meeting centre in order to implement the cultural and scientific relations between Italy and Germany, privileging in particular the field of education. Three years later Villa Vigoni was created as an Italian-German association to organize and host meetings, seminars, artistic events (sometimes with study grants). The institutions, which the associations mainly refer to, are the German BMBF (Federal Ministry for Education and Research) and the Italian Ministry for Foreign Affairs.
The enchanting landscape, the beauty and the elegance of the buildings, the history of the families who inhabited them, the prestige and the variety of the art collections make Villa Vigoni one of the most charming centres in Europe.

Villa Garovaglio Ricci is set in a wonderful position, offering a delightful view on Lake Como and on the peninsula Bellagio. The complex dates back to the 18th century and originally housed a spinning-mill. It was owned by composer Francesco Pasquale Ricci (1732-1817) for a certain lapse of time, then passed to the Garovaglios at the beginning of the 19th century. Alfonso Garovaglio (1820-1905), a famous archaeologist, transformed the old spinning-mill into a prestigious dwelling-place, which would become a rich museum in a few years thanks to the several finds he had meanwhile collected. Nowadays these finds are kept in the Giovio Museum in Como. The Villa was often visited by Antonio Fogazzaro and was chosen by him as the background for a scene of his famous novel “Piccolo mondo antico”.

he Villa is the administrative seat of the Association and houses all the meetings it organizes. The large conference room, which was planned according to the most modern standards, is the core of any event. Characterized by an avant-garde design and a great flexibility of use, it is a right place for different kind of meetings: round-tables, conferences, projections, workshops. Moreover it is provided with the necessary technical equipment, included simultaneous translation equipment. The conference room can also be used for concerts thanks to its good acoustic qualities.
