Faro Voltiano di Brunate

Lighthouse Lake of Como, Italy

Visit the spectacular Faro Voltiano di Brunate

The Voltiano Lighthouse is a monument dedicated to Alexander Vault, inventor of the electric battery. 29 meters high, it dominates the lake and allows you to admire the Lario from above and the entire valley below. The Volta lighthouse was erected in 1927 as was the Volta Temple, on the occasion of the centenary of Volta's death and to celebrate the recent advent of a modern network for lighting and for the diffusion of electricity in the city of Como. The designer of the lighthouse is the engineer Gabriele Giussani.
