Restoration of the Orangerie

The Orangerie – or citrus tree greenhouse – is one of the symbols of garden recreation. Its structure, which acts as a connection with the Villa, is characterised by rich architectural forms, particularly on the monumental façade, with large windows interspersed with delicate masonry and ending with groups of sculpted putti.

At the centre, a mosaiced niche with a terracotta statue of Bacchus (currently removed and in storage). The Orangerie makes up one of the axes of the garden, also emphasised by the Water Tower, which contains the hydraulic mechanisms of the “pleasure” gardens.

Progress of collecting funds


Total cost of the restoration: € 1.020.000 (building and restoration work; doors and windows; mechanical, electrical and lighting equipment; masonry assistance)

The restoration was launched thanks to funds of € 698,000 from the Regione Lombardia Revolving Fund, € 315,000 of which were contributed by Finlombarda (€ 80,000 of which is repayable) and € 383,000 by Villarconati Srl.
