Laglio, is an Italian of 930 inhabitants in the Province of Como in Lombardy. It is on the western shore of the south-western branch of Lake Como, 9mi from the town of Como.GeographyThe town is 199m above sea level and occupies a strip of land between Mount Colmegnone, 1383m high, and the lake.The town itself is made up of several hamlets: Germanello, Ossana, Soldino, Ticée, e Torriggia.On the slopes of Mount Colmegnone above the hamlet of Torriggia is the famous "Bear Hole" cave (which can be visited upon request at the commune offices) within which were found the bones of Ursus spelaeus. The Bear Hole is made up of various rooms with partly unexplored underground lakes, and is rich in spring water.Clooney connectionIn 2001, George Clooney purchased a luxurious villa which once was owned by the Heinz family, Villa Oleandra, as a hideaway in which to spend substantial parts of the year. The villa also served as the filming location for some scenes of the movie Ocean’s Twelve. In June 2007, Clooney expressed opposition to a planned council development of the lakefront near his villa, and hosted a meeting of a local protest committee also opposed to the development.Monuments and places of interestBuilding started on the Church of Saints George and Gaetano da Thiene in 1619 and the church was consecrated in 1630 by the Bishop of Como, Carafino Lazarus. The large stone portal was added later, in the eighteenth century. At the center of the tympanum the niche contains a statue of St George carved in 1937.
