Formerly known as Villa Pasta, the building features neoclassical lines, a covered portico and large rooms where the famous opera singer Giuditta Pasta lived and died in the nineteenth century, who bequeathed her name to the property for a few decades.
The residence was demolished in 1904 to become Roccabruna: commissioned by the Wild family industrialists of Turin. The architect, Carlo Formenti, redesigned the property in an eclectic Renaissance style that can still be noted and admired, to create a five star hotel complex on Lake Como.
Its gardens echo of history, while the eclectic Renaissance-style villa, shrouded in singular beauty, brings us back to the time when it was home of the opera singer Giuditta Pasta, the inspirational muse of Vincenzo Bellini.
This is where the composer, stirred by the lakeside landscape between Moltrasio and Blevio, created two of his greatest works.
