The ancient “Palazzo Lorla” with its huge park that could reach the cemetery and faced the Bellano’s Orrido, is now the residential area of Santa Marta, reachable by the Manzoni Street. The place that once hosted the “Workers’ Club” is now owned by the municipality, that decided to give it back to the community in December 2018 after refurbishing it. The owner of the Club is today ArchiViVitali and hosts the photographic exhibitions by the artist Velasco Vitali.



La Scena dell’Arte – The Art Scene

2 July – 6 November 2022

A project in which ArchiViVitali and Villa Carlotta are collaborating. It is managed by Velasco Vitali and covers two different thematic sections: The secret theatre (at Villa Carlotta, Tremezzina (CO)) and “Straniamenti” (at Spazio Circolo, Bellano). The two locations aim to connect the international point of view of the Como river and the manufacturer characteristics of the Lecco river: Villa Carlotta is indeed an ancient glorious villa, whereas the Spazio Circolo is an historic club recently transformed into an exhibit’s location.



Since 2018 ArchiViVitali organizes different exhibits that respect the cultural nature of the territory, referring to its themes and specific aspects.

The exhibition schedule follows Bellano, the lake, the nature and the influence among the different artistic spheres.
