......Around 1855 Ippolito Nievo came to Bellagio where he met and fell in love with Bice Gobio Melzi.

She lived in a villa in the heart of Bellagio, with a stunning view....now known as the Hotel Suisse.

The dining room, located on the first enchanting floor, was that of Bice Melzi and was where she secretly

met with Ippolito Nievo.
