Villa Balbi Durazzo Gropallo allo Zerbino, known more familiarly as the Villa lo Zerbino, is a perfectly preserved 17th century stately home in the centre of Genoa, surrounded by large gardens with a view of the sea and overlooking the city. It provides a setting of great prestige for organising cocktail parties, private or working lunches, dinners and ceremonies, events, meetings, exhibitions, fashion shows or photographic and video sessions.
Genoa at your feet and downtown a few steps away, in an evocative private park of almost 30.000 square meters. The hustle of the city is only a memory whilst in the garden of Villa Lo Zerbino, the perfect location to host a cocktail party or seated dinner for up to 1500 guests and 130 parking slots. In daylight the Villa is reflected in the central pool of the park, while at night it is the latter to stand out: with the addition of light play, choreographed water features or fireworks, the surroundings are even more sensational.
