Via Mandriolo Superiore

42015 Correggio

The design is attributed to PierGiacinto Terrachini.

The villa is made of exposed brick with two-light mullioned windows and windows surmounted by terracotta decorations. The oldest part of the building, probably of eighteenth-century origin, retains its simple previous forms.
Inside, the Ariosto Room holds frescoes showing episodes from the epic poem Orlando Furioso painted by Enrico Montessori and Emilio Meulli.

The complex is preceded by a small garden.
