Isola Bella & Isola Madre

Isola Bella & Isola Madre

Isola Bella is the ideal destination to immerse yourself in the Baroque age.
A guide will accompany the youngsters around the 17th-century princely dwelling, telling of the rich treasures safeguarded in the twenty rooms of Palazzo Borromeo: paintings, tapestries, carved wood, statues, sumptuous furnishings and the important Painting Gallery or the General Berthier Gallery, the only art gallery that remains from among the many that existed in Northern Italy and that have been lost over the years.

It has more than one hundred and thirty works on display, from the followers of Leonardo to the masters of 17th-century Lombardy.
The adventure continues in the mosaic grottoes, a cool, delightful place at water level, and with walks in the splendid Italian-style garden with its terraces in bloom, fountains and statues representing rivers, winds and seasons.
If you climb the steps of the Teatro Massimo, it will be possible to admire the panorama of Lago Maggiore as though you were on the deck of a sailing ship.

Famous for the extraordinary blooms that make it unique, on Isola Madre expert guides will accompany the young visitors on a tour devoted to knowledge of the incredible botanical varieties from all over the world.
When you immerse yourself in this luxuriant nature, it will be clear why Gustave Flaubert defined it as an earthly paradise. Not to be missed in the sixteenth-century Palazzo with the precious reconstruction of period rooms is the extraordinary collection of puppet theatres and 17th-century marionettes. Unique locations that have fascinated visitors of every age, from Napoleon to Charles Albert of Savoy, from Flaubert to Oscar Wilde.

Alla mostra “Fantastic Utopias” all’Ala Scaligera della Rocca di Angera c’è spazio per ogni forma d’arte. L’artista ucraina Zhanna Kadyrova porta con sé la sua esperienza tra video e fotografia, scultura, performance e installazione.
.
Nell’opera Second Hand assistiamo ad un inconsueto accostamento: piastrelle di edifici in decadimento o distrutti diventano capi d’abbigliamento e biancheria. Un’installazione che racconta con parole differenti la storia della fabbrica di seta Darnitsky Silk Factory, un tempo una delle più importanti in URSS.
.
L’artista gioca con diverse forme e materiali, alla ricerca di nuovi significati. Eppure, la materia rimane ciò che dà forma e completa, prima di ogni cosa viene sempre l’idea.

In the "Fantastic Utopias" exhibition at the Ala Scaligera of the Rocca di Angera there is room for every art form. Ukrainian artist Zhanna Kadyrova expresses her experience through video, photography, sculpture, performance and installation. 
.
In the work "Second Hand", work we see an unusual combination: tiles from decaying or destroyed buildings become clothing and linens. An installation that tells the story of the Darnitsky Silk Factory, once one of the most important in the USSR, with different words.
.
The artist plays with a variety of shapes and materials, in search of new meanings. Although physical matter remains, gives shape and completes, the idea always comes first.

Avete mai fatto caso che alcuni dei profumi più intensi in natura provengono da fiori bianchi? Non solo gardenie, ma anche gelsomini, tuberose, zagare...
🐝
La perfezione della natura gli permette di attirare gli insetti impollinatori anche senza una sgargiante palette di colori, solo con il loro inconfondibile profumo caldo e avvolgente.
🌱
D'estate l'essenza delle gardenie in fiore nell’atrio di Diana trasforma la visita ai giardini dell’Isola Bella in un'esperienza che coinvolge tutti i sensi.

Have you ever noticed that some of the most intense perfumes in nature come from white flowers? Not only gardenias, but also jasmine, tuberose, orange blossom...
🐝
The perfection of nature allows them to attract pollinating insects without a bright color palette: using only their unmistakably warm and enveloping scent.
🌱
In summer, the essence of the gardenias in bloom in Diana's atrium transforms a visit to the gardens of Isola Bella into an experience that involves all the senses.
