Gargnano | Palazzo Feltrinelli

Via Rimembranza, 2, 25084, Gargnano, BS

Description

Our tour takes us to the northern shore of Lake Garda, more specifically to Piazza Vittorio Veneto in Gargnano, where Palazzo Feltrinelli is located. It was built by order of the Feltrinelli family, which originally was from Gargnano and moved to Milan only later. The residence was designed by the architect Solimi and built in the last years of the 19th century.

The building is rectangular and extends over three floors, with the entrance being graced by a colonnade with three arcades. The change of ownership led to the building being used as a monastery and later by the fascists: like many other residences in the area, Palazzo Feltrinelli was confiscated during the Republic of Salò and used as part of the fascist operations centre.

Today, the building is the seat of the University of Milan, which offers Italian language courses during the summer months and hosts meetings and conferences. 

Gargnano also houses a country estate commissioned by the Feltrinelli family. The villa, known as Villa Feltrinelli, is surrounded by a lovely garden. The stylish neo-gothic building has been renovated recently and now houses a splendid luxury hotel.
