Friends of Villa Vigoni

The Supporters’ Circle of Friends of the Villa Vigoni, inspired by the historical Italian-German friendship between the Mylius and Vigoni families, aims to promote cultural exchange between Italy and Germany by supporting the activities of Villa Vigoni.



One of the main aims of the Supporters’ Circle is to help get more young people involved in Villa Vigoni’s activities. It therefore plans and co-funds the Vigoni Student Forum in partnership with Villa Vigoni. This annual event offers European students aged 18-25 the chance to come together and discuss topical European issues under the guidance of experts from the world of science, politics and culture.


Over the years, the Supporters’ Circle has backed a number of projects and initiatives that, among other things, have made it possible to:

  • restore the loggia at Villa Garovaglio Ricci
  • commission a portrait of Don Ignazio Vigoni
  • purchase a Bechstein grand piano
  • purchase technical material for the conference room


Becoming a member of the Supporters’ Circle means making an active contribution to the cultural life of Villa Vigoni and having the exclusive opportunity to attend a wide range of different initiatives, including concerts, conferences, social meals and meetings with key figures from Villa Vigoni’s international milieu.
