Villa Lucini, the history

Since the end of the 17th century, the place where Villa Lucini stands today belonged to the nobleman Innocente Gemelli.

"In 1692, Monticello was granted as a fief to the nobleman Bartolomeo Gemelli, who established a residence next to the church of San Rocco in a U-shaped building (now Villa Gerli, Editor's Note) with a courtyard facing the street and an extensive Italian garden, created by his son Innocente."

(from Angelo Borghi, Il medio corso dell'Adda. Sacralizzazioni strutture della memoria, Oggiono, Cattaneo, 1999, p. 91.)

The building known as the "Dependance" (Outbuilding) overlooks Via della Salute, near the main entrance of the Villa Lucini complex.

The Dependance is perhaps the oldest structure in the complex, as it is the first one to appear in the Teresian Cadastre maps. It likely dates back to the 18th century in its original structure.
