Terrace toward the lake


The first part of plane-trees promenade ends in a large open space in front of the Villa whose facade is simple and sober, enriched
only by a double flight of stairs with four lions in Egyptian style created by the sculptor Giambattista Comolli.

The parterre toward the lake is delimited by two columns and shows a water lilies pool bordered by sculptures of the Nineteenth century.

Laterally marble statues from Sixteenth century are erected representing Apollo and Meleagro created by the sculptor Guglielmo della Porta and restored in 2004.
