Villa Edvige Garagnani is a beautiful example of a bourgeois holiday residence dating back to the second half of the 18th century.

The loggia passing through the ground floor of the villa is worth seeing: its woodland frescoes attributed to the Basoli make it an ideal setting for civil wedding ceremonies. The same is true of the Romantic park around the villa, dominated by a centuries-old Cedrus deodara.

Always known as the “Mayors' Villa”, it has been owned by the Municipality of Zola Predosa since 1971. Recently restored, the villa is now an elegant, multiporpose building with flexible indoors modernly equipped hosting a wide range of events: conferences, courses, exhibitions, meetings for large or small groups of people, private parties and receptions.

Since 2006, the Villa has been housing the local Tourist Information Office (www.iatcollibolognesi.it). The Centre for the Study of the “Bolognese Villas”is also based here (www.villebolognesi.it).
Villa Edvige Garagnani, from September 2013, houses "Punto del Gusto" of the Association Strada dei Vini e dei Sapori "Città Castelli Ciliegi".
The Villa is just a few kilometres far from the centre of  Bologna and the Casalecchio di Reno and Borgo Panigale tollgates. Thanks to the main provincial transport links, it can be easily reached by train (Bologna-Vignola railway line) and bus (94 and 671 bus line).
