18th century villa entirely frescoed and furnished with period furniture; it is still inhabited by the heirs of the original owners who have equipped the complex to host meetings, congresses and convivial events.
It is also the ideal location for weddings and dream events: you can enjoy the villa exclusively for the whole day by organizing the banquet both in the internal rooms and in the 35,000 square meter park.
Villa Botta Adorno History
The Villa with the adjoining farmhouse was for a long time the only inhabited building in Torre d'Isola.
It was built in the 18th century by the Marquises Botta Adorno and later its successors were its owners: Cusani Visconti, Litta Modignani, up to the Morelli di Popolo. The main body of the building opens towards the town square in a majestic and elegant courtyard of honor and faces south on a splendid park, sloping down towards the river. Towards the west, from the “sleeve” of the courtyard, we pass to the large agricultural courtyard.
A legend was born around the figure of the Marquis Antoniotto Botta Adorno that wants his ghost to wander in the oldest wing of the villa, where an ancient tower had existed and where some suppose he hid the treasure stolen from Genoa around the middle of the eighteenth century .
He never married or had children. It is not known where his body was buried, although he was probably interred in Pavia, where a plaque with his noble insignia is visible in the church of Saints Gervasus and Protasio.
The location has indoor and outdoor spaces; inside there are elegant rooms furnished with period furniture and decorated with original eighteenth-century frescoes.
Outside there is the immense centuries-old park, which due to its beauty lends itself to welcoming outdoor receptions.
The villa makes its internal and external spaces available to the spouses to celebrate official civil ceremonies and civil unions.
