In June 2014, we’re holding our Abroad Writers’ Conference at a 18th century Villa on the shores of Lake Como. We are holding our conference at Villa La Gallietta at Lake Como, Villa La Gallietta was one of seven eighteenth-century villas built along the western shores of Lake Como, near the church of Saint George and Villa Olmo. Originally built by Pietro Antonio Fossani from Milan, who in 1772 bought the Villa Gallia and the surrounding land. Gallietta means "little Gallia", with relation to the larger building Villa Gallia. In 1830, the Villa was renovated by Melchiorre Nosetti. Nosetti adapted the facade to a neoclassical style. It should be mentioned that Count Giambattista, the writer from the Gallia family, created a selection of works in this very house which he loved for its seclusion, peace and silence. The building’s current appearance dates back to the renovation of 1830, commissioned by the physician Dr. Giuseppe Frank, professor at the University of Pavia, who purchased it in 1825 and hired the architect Melchiorre Nosetti who not only adapted to the facade to a basic Neoclassical style, but also refurbished the interiors. Upon his death, Giuseppe Frank named the University of Pavia as his sole heir, which a short time later sold the villa to the Marquis Brivio Sforza, in 1866. Since 1985 Villa Gallietta has been protected by the "Belle Arti" fine arts commission both for its architectural value and for the fresco and the elliptical vault of the atrium. The villa was also the subject of a novel written in 1856 by the French author Nathalie Comtesse.
