Accurate reading of the building's history and architectural characteristics suggested the idea of highlighting, with simple lines, the building's arcades, which recall the monastic origin of the Villa. Therefore it has been decided to represent graphically three of them, which recalls the initial letter of the word "monastery".

Villa Vigoni

Menaggio, LOMBARDIA 22017, IT
0039 034436111
In 1829 Heinrich Mylius bought a Villa at Loveno near Menaggio. During the following years he changed part of the architecture of the Villa and brought there his art collection, some statues and precious furniture. In this way the Villa became a living museum which nowadays is still perfectly preserved, also due to the care of the Vigoni-family which inherited the Villa from Heinrich Mylius. The particular atmosphere of the Villa is created not only by the family portraits and the precious furniture, but also by pieces like clocks, the porcelain services, ink-pots or oil-lamps: every detail recalls the 19th century.

Tempietto San Fedelino
L'edificio sorge sulla riva occidentale del lago di Mezzola, non distante dal punto in cui il fiume Mera sfocia nelle sue acque. E' sicuramente un ambiente isolato e suggestivo, in cui il tempietto si inserisce senza creare contrasti, ma anzi immergendosi e fondendosi con esso.

Abbazia di Piona
In essa una piccola colonia di miti e pacifici monaci cistercensi, seguendo la ultramillenaria saggezza di san Benedetto, patriarca del monachesimo d’Occidente e patrono di Europa, raccoglie e sublima con la vita intessuta di preghiera, di lavo o e di raccoglimento, con umana e cristiana condivisione, la gioia, il dolore, l’ansia di tanti fratelli vicini e lontani, bisognosi di luce e di conforto; l’abbazia diventa, secondo il vangelo, la lucerna posta sul candelabro, la cittadella costruita sull’altura che non può essere tenuta nascosta.

Riserva Regionale Pian di Spagna, Lago di Mezzola
In epoca romana il Lago di Como e l'attuale Lago di Mezzola costituivano un unico corpo.
Solo successivamente il materiale depositato dalle frequenti alluvioni dell'Adda iniziò ad accumularsi fino a formare il Pian di Spagna. I due laghi restarono in comunicazione attraverso la Mera.
La preziosità di quest'area è stata segnalata dalla Convenzione di Ramsar, un documento importantissimo a livello internazionale per la salvaguardia delle zone umide soprattutto come habitat degli uccelli acquatici, che l'Italia ha sottoscritto nel 1971. Nonostante questo, come spesso accade, il cammino che ha portato alla sua protezione è stato lungo e difficoltoso.
