FONDAZIONE COLOGNI DEI MESTIERI D'ARTE

The Cologni Foundation for the Métiers d’Art is a private non-profit organisation founded in Milan in 1995 by its President Franco Cologni. The Foundation promotes a range of cultural, scientific and educational projects, aimed at protecting and fostering the arts and crafts. The “Mestieri d’Arte” and “Ricerche” book series (published by Marsilio) narrate the history of this outstanding heritage, from its origin to the present day, examining both the great tradition of Italian know-how and new interpretations of contemporary craftsmanship. The book series “Storietalentuose”, published by Carthusia, introduces children to the fascinating world of Italian artistic crafts. The Cologni Foundation created the magazine Arts & Crafts & Design, published by Swan Group, dedicated to the excellence of the “Made in Italy” hallmark. The Cologni Foundation actively supports the training of young people in high-skilled craftsmanship and their integration into the labour market with its internship project “A School, a Job. A Road to Excellence”. www.fondazionecologni.it

FAI - FONDO AMBIENTE ITALIANO

The mission of FAI (Fondo Ambiente Italiano, usually referred to in English as the Italian National Trust) is twofold: on the one hand, it is to promote a tangible culture of respect for Italy's natural heritage, art, history and traditions; and on the other, it is to protect a legacy that forms a fundamental part of the roots and identity of the Italian people. FAI is a national, not-for-profit trust that was set up in 1975 and has since gone on to save, restore and open to the public numerous fine examples of Italy's artistic and natural heritage.

NON SOLO MATRIMONI

 

NON SOLO MATRIMONI

Manuela Martinelli is a wedding planner, that also organizes private and corporate events.
Here is how she presents herself and her work:
"I am curious, creative, determined and organized, but I never forget to smile.
For me the perfect moment is the result of this things. All events are journeys, there is a path and I accompany couples, parents, companies in the creation of a special day that will occupy a place of honor in the album of their memories.
To make an occasion, a wedding, a birthday, a corporate event really special is fundamental to curate every detail and every element. Because the sum of the individual parts makes the difference.
For me every event is a different project, that I have to customize listening to people's needs, requests, desires and dreams constantly".

VILLA MAPELLI MOZZI

 

VILLA MAPELLI MOZZI

The Villa Mapelli Mozzi, a splendid noble residence set in the heart of the Brianza countryside, surrounded by a 18.000 sqm park, is less than an hour from Milan, and a short distance from Como and Lecco.
The origins of the Villa are those of an ancient monastery built in the 1500s which is believed to be standing on the red court itself. The passing of the following centuries resulted in substantial modifications to the structure of the building, and in 1927, the architect Alberico Barbiano di Belgiojoso completed the renovation with stylistic interventions that accentuate the late 18th century aspects of the villa.
The Villa is full of period finishes, like the stucco decorated ceilings, the venetian marble and ancient durmast oak floorings.
On the ground floor the wide reception rooms facing the park are furnished with valuable antique furniture that give this location a unique atmosphere.
The upper floor consists of the same features as the lower floor: the spacious gallery provides access to the bedrooms overlooking the park, the red court and the pool.
The Villa can host up to 39 guests in the 19 bedrooms and is provided by central heating, which allows it to be used during the winter period.  

 

VILLAGO

 

VILLAGO

Villago originates from two graduated in Cultural Heritage with the dream of a business producing culture in Italy. The Brianza area is their first reference territory: it’s a vacation area between Milan and Lake Como, full of precious villas, still belonging to aristocracy of the past. Silvia Brusadelli and Giovanni Vanossi linked them in a network, creating a new tourist proposal: their guests sleep in canopied bed and for them they prepare breakfasts and dinners with ancient dishes and pieces of silverware. They make their guests sit down in historical living rooms for elegant tea breaks and they make them fun with aristocratic hobbies. Silvia and Giovanni created a new “life style” of vacation in villa and they want to spread it in the whole Italy.

With Villago we are creating “Home to home”, a project to discover beautiful residences and gardens, designing thematic guided visits between selected special locations. Thanks to our expertise we can choose the best villas for an itinerary following your passions and desires, for unforgettable experiences and unique memories.
