The Borromeo Experience on Isola Madre means discovering the charm of an exotic destination behind closed doors, together with whoever you want. A guide will accompany you among the beauties of the botanical park and the period furnishings of the residence. A gourmet aperitif served in front of the Little Church of San Vittore is the culmination of the experience. The final note is left at sunset on Verbano, creating reflections on the waterlily pool.

🖼
L’unica galleria di pittura barocca tra Piemonte e Lombardia conservata fino a noi è a Palazzo Borromeo sull’Isola Bella.
.
È la Galleria Berthier che tra le sue 130 opere, comprende anche dipinti di grandi nomi nella cerchia di Leonardo da Vinci, tra cui Bernardino de’ Conti, tra i maggiori esponenti della tradizione sforzesca.
🖌
Anche in questo ritratto d’uomo, la vista di tre quarti su fondo scuro, l’attenzione ai dettagli del costume del personaggio e la durezza plastica, quasi di derivazione nordica, ne fanno i tratti distintivi di questo grande autore.

🖼
The only baroque painting gallery between Piedmont and Lombardy preserved to this day is at Palazzo Borromeo on Isola Bella.
.
It is the Galleria Berthier, which houses 130 works including paintings by renowned artists in the circle of Leonardo da Vinci, including Bernardino de' Conti; one of the greatest exponents of the Sforza tradition.
🖌
Even in this portrait of a man, depicted in a three-quarter perspective on a dark background, the attention to detail of the character's costume and the hardness of the plastic, almost of Nordic derivation, are the hallmarks of this great artist.
