The annual art exhibition at Villa Olmo on Lake Como was in doubt this year, but a few weeks ago it was confirmed that for 2011 you will be able to see works by Giovanni Boldini and other artists of the Belle Epoque.

The exhibition opens next week on Friday the 25th of March and runs until July the 24th.  The Villa is right on the lake edge with beautiful gardens, not far from Como town centre (map). As well as the works of Boldini you will be able to see pieces by Giuseppe De Nittis, Federico Zandomeneghi and Vittorio Corcos.
