Welcome to Cypress Island!
Its history hail from the Neolithic (10-15000 B.C.). On the eastern tip there were lake-dwellings. The historical events were tied to those of the Lake Pusiano and its illustrious owners and prestigious events.
Islands always have a great charm. The water all around gives a feeling of protection to the people on the island and an adventure sense to those willing to reach it.
Cypress Island is small.
There is a little house and it is situated in a lake that we cannot define as a big one. Great, however, are both the history and the charm of this site; great were the characters that have owned it, the artists and writers who have admired it.
The Foundation, born in 2011 and legally recognized by the Region of Lombardia, has the main aim of maintaining, protecting, preserving, promoting and valuing the artistical asset of Cypress Island and Lake of Pusiano.
Furthermore the Foundation cultivates, protects and enhances the nature, the environment and the history of Lake Pusiano, of significant places of the territory, Lombard families, promoting studies, research, and publishing historical books.
