1. Morazzone: Casa Macchi Entry Ticket
Casa Macchi is a charming provincial building that rises in the shadow of a bell tower of a church in a quiet village a few kilometers from Varese, Morazzone. There’s nothing extraordinary about this place, neither in the garden, in the architecture, in the decorations or furnishings, nor in the objects or history of its inhabitants. But the first visit satisfies, because there is an indisputable charm in a world that was preserved down to the smallest details, which seems almost stealthy, sudden and unavoidable and which still smells of daily life, imagining a coffee maker left on the stove, left on the table between the armchairs of the living room. Beyond the dense webs and dust, what strikes Casa Macchi is the possibility to capture the authentic life of a dwelling that was neither a farmhouse nor a palace, neither ordinary nor extraordinary, but typical, traditional, simple, close in forms and bourgeois, with some pleasant upper-bourgeois charm, in order to generate curiosity and empathy to the visitors, in order to recognize objects and customs in a domestic landscape that belongs to its own tradition (especially if Lombard), able to tickle the memory and ignite some antiquarian interest.
