A path through history, culture and nature.

Villa Arconati is located in a strategic position from an environmental and naturalistic point of view. It is in fact one of the principle attractions of the Parco delle Groane, a protected area that covers over 3,000 hectares north of Milan, characterised by extensive moors, which are among the last to survive in the area around the city.

This zone is today at the centre of a process of landscaping and environmental development thanks to its inclusion in the circuit of Landscape Expo Tours as the epicentre of the LET 1, and in the project Le Vie d’Acqua. The project involves the open spaces in the greenbelt to the west of the city, the Navigli and the irrigation network, to create a new green-blue ring around the Expo, from the Parco delle Groane to the marina. In doing so, it creates a bike path which links city and country, offering a new way to take advantage of the area in accordance with the central themes of the Expo. Passing among parks, lakes, woods and moors, Villa Arconati represents a fascinating stop on this itinerary, uniting environment, history and culture.

In this context, the plan to restore and convert Villa Arconati – with the 200 hectares of woods, moors and cultivated land that surrounds it – is open to projects, activities and innovative events linked to nature, both relating to the Gardens and the agricultural area of the Villa.
