Like last year, the event Ville Aperte in Brianza, (organized by the Provincia di Monza e Brianza), offers two special editions: the Spring Edition and the Autumn Edition.
The Spring Edition will be held on 29th and 30th of April, and on 1st – 6th and 7th of May, and only the Villas of Delight will participate.
The President Alessandra Hofmann attended the press conference for the presentation of Ville Aperte which took place at the headquarters of the Provincia di Monza e Brianza. She underlined the support of the Provincia di Lecco in the coordination of the different entities participating in the initiative, with the aim of promoting the entire province.
Also this year, the Provincia di Lecco participates with Villa Monastero of Varenna.
In the botanical Garden there are important requalification works thanks to the PNRR (National Recovery and Resilience Plan); the project will make the Garden even more charming.
