Sesto Calende is a town and comune located in the province of Varese, in the Lombardy region of northern Italy.It is at the southern tip of Lake Maggiore, where the Ticino River starts to flow towards the Po River. The main historical sight is the Abbey of San Donato, built in the 9th and 10th centuries. It houses a painting by Bernardino Zenale (1503).TriviaEmile Taddéoli left Switzerland for Sesto Calende where he was hired as test pilot for Savoia in mid-1914. During the next five years of activity, Taddéoli made more than 2,700 flight tests, flying about 150000km. In January 1919 Emile Taddéoli was pioneering again in crossing the Apennine Mountains in a seaplane between Sesto Calende and San Remo. On 12 July 1919, with a passenger on board, he flew from Calende on Lago Maggiore to Lake Geneva in 110 minutes, overflying the Mont Blanc (4695m) massif in his SIAI S.13.
