The "Gardesana" building has more than 500 years of history. It has been built by the Venetian Republic for the meetings of the Council of the Ten Communes of this side of the lake.After Napoleon, during the Austrian domination, until 1866, it had a dark period of decadence.At the end of the last century, it was transformed into a hotel and, in a few decades, it became the centre of culture, arts and good cuisine.In the last fifty years, it has been preferred by famous personages like: Beniamino Gigli, Toti Dal Monte, Angelo Dall'Oca Bianca, André Gide, Stephen Spender, Vivien Leigh, Lawrence Olivier, Maria Callas, Luis Trenker, Dino Risi, Ugo Tognazzi and Vittorio Gassman.In 1980 the building was bought by Mr. & Mrs. Lorenzini. They continued, with enthusiasm, the improvement of the hotel and restaurant in order to satisfy their distinguished guests.
