Overview

About Casa Brenna Tosatto

A chic artist enclave on Lake Como

A Liberty Style House on Lake Como that is designated as an association devoted to art - dedicated to the artist Mario Tosatto. This is a “chic enclave”, with an intriguing mix of contemporary and antique design and works of art distributed throughout the house.

Mario Tosatto hailed from Vicenza, studying at the academy of art in Venice and Florence, and training as an architect. He moved near Como to take a job in an architectural studio and married his employer’s daughter Sofia, fathering two sons. A true labour of love, he designed the house and assisted throughout the building process, such was his passion for it. Later many of his sculptures and paintings were created here until his premature death at the age of 27.

His son Antonio guarded and catalogued all his works carefully and now his great grand-nephew Franco has turned the house into a cultural centre, showcasing his ancestor’s works, both the artistry of his sculptures and paintings as well as the splendid work of architecture that makes up his home.

 

It is a rare occasion to be able to see a vast collection of works by an artist in his very home, and truly incredible to actually sleep there. The aura of Tosatto permeates the walls and lives on through his works; guests have the chance to experience it firsthand.
