The celebration of civil marriages has taken place for years in the beautiful park of the municipal seat of Villa Boghi, the romantic flowered gazebo will be the setting for your most beautiful day.
"La Casetta", more commonly known today as "Villa Boghi", was built at the beginning of the 20th century to a design by engineer Giovanni Bonaventura Gerardi. It was owned by Luigi Gerardi (1828-1906); on his death the property passed to his daughter Sofia (1880-1943), who was married to Antonio Boghi (1867-1931), an industrialist from Cantù who was in love with Limone. During the Second World War, the villa was requisitioned several times: in September 1943 to house the German Command, in April 1944 - when Limone was also part of the territory of the Italian Social Republic (R.S.I.) - for Lieutenant Bruno Ridarelli, in May to house first General Tomaso Semadini, head of the political service of the General Command of the Republican National Guard, and then the Minister of National Education Carlo Albero Biggini. On 26 August 1944 it was FIAT's Officina X, which had moved some of its plants to the Gardesana Occidentale tunnels, that asked for the requisition of the villa's 11 rooms to house its offices. Since 2004 Villa Boghi has been the seat of the Town Hall. It can be accessed either from Via IV Novembre or from Via Tamas, near the capital dedicated to St Giovanni Nepomuceno. In the large park, open to the public every day from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., the Limonaia, paths and flowerbeds have been carefully arranged. There are numerous citrus trees, olive trees, cypresses, palms, and exotic plants. The bust of St. Daniel Comboni (1831-1881), a 1981 work by Hans Oberstaller, has been placed in the northern part of the garden.
Limonaia del Castel
The Limonaia del Castel was purchased in 1995, renovated and put back into use, with the planting of over a hundred citrus trees, the restoration of the terracing and the irrigation system, and the arrangement of the tool sheds, which have also become an educational trail.
To facilitate access to the limonaia, ceramic tiles have been placed on the streets in the center.
The Limonaia del Castel is the ideal place to say "I do": the terraces overlooking Lake Garda offer a unique view!
