MOLTRASIO, IL ROMANTICO PAESE DEL LAGO CARO A BELLINI
SATURDAY 19 SEPTEMBER 2020
Villago offers an unprecedented guided tour of the historic village of Moltrasio, the romantic village on Lake Como that inspired the young Vincenzo Bellini.
The proposed itinerary retraces the historical stages of the village’s evolution: from the very religious Middle Ages to the tormented 17th-18th century in Como, from the romantic period of the villas of delight and illustrious guests, to the present day, between sumptuous hotels and splendid VIP holidays.
We will begin our tour from the majestic church of San Martino, dating back to the distant 13th century, prestigious and truly imposing when compared to the size of the village. Here, we will visit the splendid works of the Recchi brothers and the paintings of the “Fiamminghino” worthy of a cathedral, but also the evocative chapels and the Sacred Thorn of Jesus, brought to the church in the 1700s by the abbot Giuseppe Antonio Durini.
We will continue to another jewel of the lake’s religious devotion, the 11th-century church of Sant’Agata (usually not open to the public), where we will enter for a special visit to the interior, characterized by suggestive works including an imposing San Cristoforo.
We will then approach one of the best known villas, Villa Passalacqua, to admire its beauty and tell you about the curiosities of the families who own the villa, as well as the illustrious guests who are often guests of the residence.
Subsequently, through a historic staircase, we will go down to visit the shore of Moltrasio, which has now become the most prestigious area of the country, and, near the lakeside gardens, we will involve you in the fascinating vicissitudes of the young Vincenzo Bellini here on holiday.
We will let you know his love stories, or presumed such, but above all his musical works inspired by the splendid lakeside location.
We will finish the journey at the historic landing stage, but not before having shown you the wonderful hotels and places of the international jet set, which, today as then, feed gossip, gossip and fill the pages of the gossip column.
