Lake Como, on the bluff overlooking Varenna, is located the Vezio Castle which has stood there for more than a thousand years.

It is famous for its falconry displays and its ghosts…

Created annually, these ghost sculptures are formed around willing models by a local artist. Wire mesh is used, then material and plaster from which, when set, the human is removed. These sculptures are placed at random around the castle for visitors to admire.
