Lake Como Castle
History Line The Castello was built on a 9th century fortification tower where signal fires were lit to warn Como and Milan of invading barbarian hordes. This strategic lookout post was also used in the 16th century and expanded into an armoury. From the Castello windows, one can see clearly the sweeping views both to the north and south to Como which is what makes it such an incredible sun kissed location to this day. The Castello was first converted to a residence in 1980 by renowned Venetian architect Tobia Scarpa. The moorish influences in Scarpa's Venetian heritage are evident in the architecture and the interiors. Scarpa was given carte blanche to transform the Castello into an exotic family getaway by then owner, iconic modern furniture magnate Piero Ambrogio Busnelli of B&B Italia. The monogram 'PAB' embedded in the stone kitchen terrace was preserved to pay homage to the Castello's famed previous owner.
