a beautiful wedding among the gardens and the flowers of Villa Pizzo

"Keep love in your heart. A life without it is like a sunless garden when the flowers are."Oscar Wilde

Nestled deep within the Alps district, the Lake Como is among the most picturesque on the planet and is also famous thanks to the numerous historic villas scattered along its winding shores, and it is always a pleasure to go and discover these houses that have been (and still are many) the home of important personalities of cinema, music and entrepreneurship, or sets of famous movies and TV dramas.

Villa Pizzo is one of them: the villa has a very important historical past, that starts since 1435, when it was built on the ruins of ancient vineyards and olive groves, among the charming villages of Cernobbio and Moltrasio. Nowaday the villa romantically overlooks Lake Como, and it is a magnificent location in neoclassical style: celebrating your wedding here means diving into an atmosphere of times gone by. Overlooking the shores of Lake Como, Villa Pizzo invites you to follow the small boats that quietly fall after a day spent browsing.

The sense of relaxation that reigns along the avenues and terraces of the beautiful Italian garden has contributed greatly to the fame of this villa, chosen many times as a film location (with actors such as Donald Sutherland and Robert Redford) or music videos (including some solo songs by Mick Jagger, lead vocalist of the Rolling Stones).
