LOMBARDIA (Italy): VILLA BOSSI - Collezione BIZZI

Surrounded by an English-style park with old trees, there is Villa Bossi, elegant mansion built between the sixteenth and the eighteenth century. The frescoed interiors and coffered ceilings, the period furnishings and antiques, the Italian-style garden enclosed by the hornbeam hedges, the imposing three-hundred-year magnolia and the various flowerings and blossoming that alternate in the seasons are the ideal setting for a recording studio project.

The complex is comprised of the entire Villa Bossi, with several different spaces available:

Recording Studio
