Villa Le Due Torrette: The History

The ancient Villa Le Due Torrette is located near Erba, overlooking the lakes of Alserio and Pusiano. Dating back to the 18th century, the structure was built within the medieval village where the town's castle once stood. During this period, the two ancient watchtowers that now give the Villa its name were reconstructed. The initial owners of the complex were members of the noble Colombo family.

After about a century, in 1813, they decided to sell Villa Le Due Torrette to the brothers Francesco and Leopoldo Valaperta. The Valaperta family, at that time, owned a large textile plant dedicated to silk production. Additionally, their lineage actively participated in the conflicts that led to the unification of Italy. For this reason, Villa Le Due Torrette hosted various Carbonari and notable figures, such as the painter Francesco Hayez and Alessandro Manzoni.

In the early 20th century, the mansion was sold to the Crespi family, one of Italy's most important industrial families. They later transferred the property to the Giussani family, who, in turn, sold it to the Pinas, the current owners of the complex. After careful restoration and modernization of some spaces, Villa Le Due Torrette is now open for weddings and events. Since 2017, the venue has also been recognized by the municipality of Erba for the celebration of civil ceremonies with legal validity.
