«That branch of the lake of Como, which extends towards the south, is enclosed by two unbroken chains of mountains, which, as they advance and recede, diversify its shores with numerous bays and inlets. Suddenly the lake contracts itself, and takes the course and form of a river, between a promontory on the right, and a wide open shore on the opposite side». This is I Promessi Sposi by Alessandro Manzoni.Villa Lario stands right there, in Mandello del Lario, world famous for being the home of the iconic Moto Guzzi.
