History and Architecture

Villa Padulli was built by the Padulli family of Verona, which was already flourishing in the 13th century and over the following centuries had arranged marriages of great prestige and influence with the Borromeo and the Melzi d’Eryl. In the 19th century it chose Cabiate as its official residence. The villa was constructed in two different stages: the manor house was erected at the beginning of the 19th century, while the servants’ quarters were built from 1860 onwards, during a period of true flowering which saw, among others, Antonio Rosmini and Alessandro Manzoni as guests of the family. The structure was erected close to a terraced natural hill, immersed in the greenery of a large park that overlooks the whole of the town. The interiors, with the typical structure of the 19th-century country house, have frescoed ceilings and mosaic floors. The villa used to have a private chapel, but this has now fallen into disuse.
