Built at the end of 16th century as private house of Cardinal Gallio, Villa Balbiano became the background of extraordinary banquets and dances when it was bought by cardinal Durini, during the 17th century. 

Cardinal Durini also started to embellish and enlarge the original Villa; a work of renovation that continued with all the next owners of the estate, until now.

In fact, nowadays, Villa Balbiano is an authentic treasure of art, opulence and elegance, thanks to its untouched 17th century fresco rooms and the most terrific and refined furniture and art objects.
