Villa Olmo in Como is a historic villa built in neoclassical style between 1782 and 1787 by the Swiss architect Simone Cantoni for the marquis Innocenzo Odescalchi. In 1925 the villa was sold to the Municipality of Como to host an international exhibition on Alessandro Volta, a famous resident of Como.
The villa takes its name from the two magnificent specimens of elm (olmo in Italian) in the surrounding park. Both the park and the villa are directly overlooking the Como lake, offering an enchanting view of the city of Como.
Nowadays Villa Olmo hosts prestigious exhibitions, events and conferences.
