VILLA PESENTI AGLIARDI

HISTORY

L ocated at the foot of the hills, ten kilometers from Bergamo, the seventeenth-century Villa Pesenti-Agliardi was enlarged and modified in 1798, commissioned by Count Pietro Pesenti, to the architect Leopold Pollack, with an innovative neo-classical reinterpretation of mansion and garden. In the Pollack drawings, still preserved in the villa, the theme of the garden is enriched with significant monuments, intended to delight the host and guests is inspired by the purpose of this house, symbolically shown by the statues placed in niches at the ends of the wings: Agriculture and Hospitality. The project was never carried out in full and the garden was later reinterpreted in a romantic setting. In the villa you can admire the chapel, the grand staircase, the rooms decorated with remarkable frescoes and stucco. After the untimely death of Pietro Pesenti in 1826 , the villa passed to his niece Marianna Agliardi.
