Verbania. Villa Giulia



This historic building is closely associated with the Branca family, inventors of one of Italy's most famous liqueurs: Fernet. The extension work on the previous building (1845) took two attempts, the first one sinking disastrously into the lake, taking a grand staircase with it. After several changes of ownership in 1932, it was transformed into Kursaal, the Municipal Casino, which became a discotheque in the 1960s. Today it is owned by the municipality, which uses it for exhibitions and fairs.
