Villa Arconati is considered one of the most beautiful noble villas in the province of Milan, representing a source of pride and a wealth of great historical, artistic, cultural and architectural value. The villa can be accessed from Viale dei Leoni, a tree-lined avenue that introduces visitors to the majesty of the building in front of them. The villa is located within the confines of the beautiful Groane Park, a protected area of over 3,000 hectares, where some of the newest moors around Milan can be found today.
Inside Villa Arconati, referred to in the past as Italy's "little Versailles" for its splendour and beauty, you will find a frescoed ballroom, a museum with an enormous statue of Pompey the Great and a library, as well as several rooms used for private or corporate events, such as the Hall of Pompey, its largest room. Outside, nature and architecture come together in the Gardens with its various outdoor theatres with water games that represent the artifice. Numerous whimsical jets of water spring from the mosaic floor of the Andromeda Theatre. The Diana Theatre houses all types of complex mechanisms of water in the garden, while a system of waterfalls is situated alongside the Staircase of the Dragons.
Every summer at Villa Arconati a music festival is held with international performers, when the villa and its gardens are opened to the public. During the Festival of Villa Arconati you can join the guided tours conducted before the concerts to catch a glimpse of areas that are generally not open to the public.
