Villa Del Dosso and Piero Portaluppi

Created by the architect Piero Portaluppi at Somma Lombardo (Varese) between 1932

and 1934, Villa Del Dosso is considered to be one of the greatest works in the vast

production of the great architect. It is located in the Parco del Ticino, a protected

environmental oasis nominated as a SIC (site of community importance) since 2008, in an

enclosed area of about 17 hectares, where it is normal to see a multitude of wild deer and

bucks running wild yet completely used to man. The building is recorded in the Register of

the Portaluppi Foundation and is part of a larger building complex which also includes a

hunting house, a porter’s lodge/stable, a consecrated chapel

and other minor buildings all designed by Portaluppi.
