Villa Erba reopens to the public with the project "La Cultura di Villa Erba 2021" and in particular with another edition of the Lake Como Film Festival, a major open-air film festival entitled: La Riva del Cinema, to celebrate the beauty of our landscapes.

Program 2021

The #CulturaVillaErba project is based on a number of key concepts: Culture, for a quality proposal shared with the Associazione Lago di Como Film Festival, in co-production with Villa Erba under the patronage of the Municipality of Cernobbio and with the support of Intesa Sanpaolo; a lively spark to support a process of community reactivation. Territory, to link places and institutions by making Villa Erba Park a meeting and sharing space accessible to the general public. Restarting together, to rediscover and foster the dimension of sociality, with an opportunity for recreation and cultural enhancement of the traditions and unique and evocative features of the Lake Como landscape.

What distinguishes us

Villa Erba represents the ideal meeting point between territoriality and culture, within the splendid setting of Lake Como. Residence of great historical figures such as the industrialist Carlo Erba and the director Luchino Visconti, the historic Villa with its centuries-old park in which there is also the modern Conference Center, are deeply rooted in history and culture, in a perfect blend with nature that surrounds them.

It is in this frame that the project La Cultura di Villa Erba was born, which blends three distinctive elements in a unicum.
Landscape: the landscape context of Lake Como, a unique heritage to be protected and strongly identifying the place;
Innovation: a modern and technological approach to culture, able to provide a quality informative offer;
Inclusion: the willingness to address a wide and heterogeneous public by encouraging exchange, sharing and growth.

To whom we turn

The project La Cultura per Villa Erba aims to make the international congress and exhibition center in Como a recognized and established place of cultural promotion and production.

The cultural and entertainment offer proposed by Villa Erba wants to be an opportunity to open up to a new public that normally does not have access to the spaces, but also to show itself with a new look to the public that already knows Villa Erba as an international congress and exhibition centre.

A place now able to attract also young people, families, people sensitive to sustainability, environmental and social issues. A place devoted to Beauty.
