Arcore – Villa Borromeo D’Adda, the historic noble residence, which in the past was also a film set, reopens to the public after a radical restoration. The villa is the result of the transformation – which took place between 1840 and 1845 by the architects Giuseppe Balzaretto and Emilio Alemagna (the author of Parco Sempione in Milan) – of an existing eighteenth-century building. The multi-purpose spaces will be reused for exhibitions and events, but also to house local bodies and associations. A full glass panoramic elevator connects the various levels of the building. “Mild”, minimalist intervention that integrates and “dialogues” with discretion with the rococo volumes of the villa.
