Backgroung of my inspirational places:
Loppia is an ancient hamlet of Bellagio, known since the time of the celibate insubia for the existing natural inlet that protects boats from the lucky ones. In 59 BC Cesare considered the Lario a crossroads of strategic importance for Italy and therefore decided to re-found the Gallic Comum oppidum in Nova Comum and to give importance to the main road that extended northwards, the Lario. As a precaution, since the Lario was a territory not entirely under Roman control, he wanted to build two specular Castra, exactly in Lemnos (today Lenno) and in Bilacus (today Bellagio). These two settlements born for military purposes saw the passage of troops up to the first imperial period, later becoming two residential units, civilians, in which the Greek and Latin colonists, settled by Caesar at the end of his military campaigns in Gaul, proliferated until the late empire.
The Plinii family, originally from Nova Comum, used to dwell for long periods of the year on the banks of the Lario, especially Pliny the Younger who in Bellagio owned a splendid Villa called Tragoedia.
In the Middle Ages the hamlet was officially included in the municipality of Bellagio and has been part of it ever since.
In the 19th century, Duke Francesco Melzi D'Eril decided to have the majestic neoclassical residence known today as Villa Melzi d'Eril built on his possessions, the architect Giocondo Albertolli wanted to create a historic residence for his illustrious client who called the pomp of the past, but at the same time the elegance and sobriety of the Neoclassical style.
