    The buildings in the Park are many: greenhouses, the stable, the Chapel, the bowls, the tennis courts, the belvedere, the pool and of course the Villa. A location surrounded by a beautiful park hosts villa of the early 900, named after the Polish banker Joseph Toeplitz, who bought it in 1914.il by making significant embellishments to the Park due to sewage and water features, at the suggestion of his wife, Hedwig Mrozowska.  The ambitious plan was a work of hydraulic engineering to channel water from the nearby Monte Martica: water games, consisting of the monumental staircase with cascading waterfalls in grey marble and porphyry mosaic interspersed with fountains of Carrara. The vegetation in the Park, was modified by Toeplitz with hedges of Cypress and pine tree spots marked by paths embellished with numerous varieties of exotic species and rejoice by water features the villa and the Park became the focus of an intense cultural life that revolved around female Hedwig. The couple, deeply religious, also decided to build a chapel, which was called by Poland the architect Goraska, who gave birth to a small masterpiece. The frescoes were instead commissioned the famous Polish painter Rosen. Hedwig, intelligent woman and eclectic, was interested also in Astronomy: therefore he built a small Observatory, perfectly equipped. In 1972, the property was acquired by the municipality of Varese, who decided to open the Park to the public. Currently the Villa houses one of the campuses of the University of Insubria.

    Villa always spectacular, more turns and more one discovers new things, lovely. The only bad note is always closed the morning with gold tone baretto, from 16 onwards, the staff seems to still take the rhythm of a small bar. The potential is huge ...

  • A beautiful park is the setting for this fine historical villa that located at the foot of the Sacro Monte di Varese. Unfortunately lately it seems very shabby but in recent times his garden appeared often among the most beautiful of Italy.
