Villa Erba is a 19th-century villa in Cernobbio, on the shores of Lake Como, Italy. It was built by Luigi Erba, brother of the prominent businessman Carlo Erba, to show off his wealth.
After the death of Luigi Erba, the villa was inherited by his daughter Carla and was used by members of Carla's family, including her son Luchino Visconti. In 1986, it was bought by a public consortium to use as an exposition and congress center.
In 2004, the villa served as a filming location for the movie Ocean's Twelve. In early 2005, American singer Gwen Stefani, shot the music video for her 2005 single, Cool, on the villa's grounds. In the same year, a leg of Anastacia's Live at Last Tour was hosted in the villa's park.
Open from 10 am to 6 pm only on specific days, visit the official website for more details.
