Villas near Martino’s Art Gallery

In Griante, Martino Luculli, has dedicated the last 30 years to painting scenes of Lake Como in a unique naïve art style. Martino was a great friend of the internationally renown painter Enrico Vannuccini who also lived and worked in Griante. Martino’s art, usually already framed, can be purchased directly from him at the gallery for reasonable prices. You are likely to find a scene from the Lake that you may remember fondly. He even sells small paintings for anywhere from 5 to 20 Euro’s that you can easily transport back home. You can visit Martino’s Art Gallery inside Bar Vecchia Torre in Griante (many people know this local like Martino’s Bar, because Martino is the owner and the creator).
