Villa dei Cedri

19th century mansion

Copyright © Massimo Pacciorini-Job

A country villa built as a holiday resort for wealthy families of the city. Equipped with vast land holdings, it had several owners. In 1931 it was bought by the banker Arrigo Stoffel, who commissioned the transformation of the neoclassical building into a representative villa, with a Palladian style loggia, a lookout tower and an English park, still well recognizable. Since 1985 it has been the seat of the Civic art gallery, now known as Museo Villa dei Cedri.
