MANDELLO DEL LARIO, IL CALMO PAESE DI VILLEGGIATURA SUL LAGO CHE “ACCENDE I MOTORI”
SATURDAY 8 MAY 2021
We offer you an unprecedented guided tour of Mandello del Lario, the quiet resort town of Lake Como, which, thanks to its tranquility, has become, thanks to Carlo Guzzi, the town symbol of engines and the speed of motorcycles.
And we’ll find out why! We will accompany you along the streets of the center, in search of that historical serenity typical of an ancient lake town: we will start from the medieval village, to discover its ancient tower, squares and alleys which, thanks to their names, recall the ancient presence of the moat, fortifications and port.
We will visit the archpriest church of San Lorenzo, of medieval origins and transformed in the 1600s, and then we will approach another place of peace, the seventeenth-century Sanctuary of the Blessed Virgin of the River, rich in Baroque works of art.
We will continue the itinerary along the lakeside among the most prestigious holiday homes, we will meet the majestic Villa Falck, and then discover “a small enclave of Milanese industrial capital” on vacation in their villas on the lake.
But not only that, in Mandello, we cannot fail to go as far as the famous “Moto Guzzi” factory to reveal to you how this very famous factory of fast motorcycles, a hundred years ago (1921), was born thanks to the tranquility of this town: Carlo Guzzi in fact , who came to vacation here, preferred peaceful Mandello to tumultuous Genoa, the city of origin of his financing partner and where Mr.
Guzzi limited himself to signing the deed of incorporation of the company with the notary on March 15, 1921 … the engines instead decided to turn them on in Mandello, so that his Aquila, in a quiet town, could fly faster and undisturbed!
