Loggia del Cashmere - Isola Madre

The Loggia del Cashmere on Isola Madre is the original venue for an en plein air concert. It is situated in front of a wonderful garden overlooked by a huge Cashmere cyprus.

The island is reached for the concert thanks to a boat organized on the occasion by the Festival, leaving Stresa main pier at 8.00 p.m..

From the Isola Madre pier you can only reach the Loggia del Cashmere by a short walk and by four flights of stairs.
