For the past 20 years, the Villa Bernasconi has provided the perfect space and environment for artists to express their creativity and for visitors to relish from it and explore their own. Enter a world that challenges conventions in beautiful natural surroundings. Located at Geneva’s doorstep in the heart of a magnificent park bordering the River Aire, the Villa Bernasconi is worth a detour for all-round art lovers. Built as a summer house for the aristocracy in 1828, it stands out from its surroundings by its red-brick colour, bringing a touch of Tuscan-feel in the Swiss countryside. Before becoming the property of the city of Lancy in the ‘90s, the Villa belonged to Maître Alphonse Bernasconi, who since the ‘60s took great interest in the artistic world and facilitated exhibitions as well as art acquisitions for the city.
