On the western shore of the lake there is our small village Mezzegra Lake Como, which is now part like so many former Italian municipalities of a new common Tremezzina.
A little curiosity is that the name Mezzegra comes from Mezz Agra middle ground.
The green of the olive trees, the small streets, the lake, however, deny great stories that see us protagonists in the past of Italian and European history.
The sumptuous and frescoed palaces of the historic center in Bonzanigo (Brentano, Rosati, Abbate, the Bishop’s House) show the success of immigrant families in Europe.
The family of Clemes Brentano German poet and author in the period of Romanticism, comes from here and also the well-known philosopher and psychologist Franz Brentano.
Here, April 28, 1945, was closed an important chapter in Italian history, when Benito Mussolini and Claretta Petacci were shot at the gate of Villa Belmonte in Giulino.
Wandering through the narrow streets of the village you can find small hidden corners, glimpses of breathtaking, beautiful walks.
From our apartments you can reach in 5 minutes the parish church of St. Abbondio, with a beautiful view of the lake where people from all over the world come to get married.
And walking and walking can also be reached Pola, where lives with his family the well-known singer-songwriter Davide Van De Sfroos, godfather and image of Lake Como for Expo 2015.
Mezzegra with its traditions (such as the Festival of Missoltino) and its people is not a classic tourist destination, as Bellagio or Varenna, but maybe that is what the guests of our apartments are looking for: find the true roots of the country they visit!
