Stresa. Villa Ducale



Also known as Palazzo Bolongaro, it is the oldest historical villa in Stresa, having traces of its existence as far back as 1771. In the mid-19th century, it became the holiday residence of the Duchess of Genoa, Elisabeth of Saxony, wife of Carlo Alberto's second son. Since then it began to be called Villa Ducale and became a meeting place for European nobility. Today it is home to the International Centre for Rosminian Studies, with a museum dedicated to the philosopher and an important library.
