Overview

The villa is a beautiful example of Art Nouveau Architecture. Designed by architect Alfredo Campanini, it was built at the beginning of the XXth century for Davide Bernasconi, owner of the silk factory with the same name. The exterior facades are enriched with decoration like silkwarms, butterflies and mulberry leaves related to silk production.
