What to expect

Standing on a spur of rock above the southern shores of Lago Maggiore, Rocca D'Angera was the house of the Visconti family before being acquired by the Borromeo family in 1449.

Five different buildings, spanning from the medieval era to the Fifteenth Century, have been merged throughout the centuries and now form the majestic Rocca D'Angera: the Torre Castellana, Ala Scaligera, Ala Viscontea, Torre di Giovanni Visconti and the Ala dei Borromeo.

Historical halls and gardens

Throughout the historical halls, visitors can perceive the solemnity of the spaces evident in the great paintings, portraits and richly decorated furniture, and be transported back in time.

The medieval influences can be observed also outside the Rocca: here, Borromeo master gardeners conceived and implemented structures and processes used in the Middle Age. Blending together healing herbs and ornaments, grown according to geometrical patterns, the garden have been progressively transformed into the colorful paradise that can be seen today.

The Museum of Dolls and Toys

Founded in 1988, the Museum of Dolls and Toys is one of the greatest in Europe. With its unique collection of dolls and toys, it unlocks the immagination and inspire visitors while narrating the stories of dolls and playtime. The collection includes more than one thousand dolls crafted since XVIII using ancient traditions and materials: from wood to wax, from papier-mâché to porcelain, arriving to biscuit, composition and cloth.

Until 27th September 2020, the exhibition "Fantastic Utopias" will be hosted in the six rooms of the Ala Scaligera, the works of 15 international artists who, in their diversity, give life to unexpected and perhaps magical images and objects, at the same time seductive and frightening, capable of taking you to alternative universes far from plausible.
