A thousand-year old story for an evocative place surrounded by the natural beauties of Parco del Ticino. Parco dello Zerbo holds in about five hectares garden all the charming green of nature, where the amazing villa designed by architect Piero Portaluppi, the early XVIII century historical church and an old little house dating back to 1500 all inlay like precious stones. The story goes that this little house was originally the chapel shielding the painting of “Madonna dello Zerbo”, before it was moved to the bigger church where it is still kept today. (“So that, the painting was moved from the old little chapel, situated in front of the present one, to the bigger and more beautiful new little church. That was the very beginning of the present Sanctum”…).
