Palazzo Borromeo, Isola Bella, Lago Maggiore

On the way to making another photo-essay of Napoli, got distracted with a gallery of the Palazzo Borromeo on Isola Bella in Lake Maggiore.

The Boromeo Palace, on the pretty island of Lake Maggiore, eh.. Incredible, who built it? A person called Borrome, I guess. Just realised I can get the answer from the internet. Quite striking, it's a great location for a film clip.

Princess Dianna spent a night there, accompanied by eight MI5 agents disguised as tuxedo wearing penguins.

Napoleon also apparently stayed there. Inside, incidentally, not in the garden. He has not been seen alive since 5 May 1821.

The mystery deepens.

They could film A Midsummer Night's Dream there. All the statuary can be the charcters of the fairy world that watch the humans and come alive when they go off stage. This would be hard to do without robot statue actors, unless you got lots of those people that like to paint themselves all over and stand still. Seeing as they don't get paid much for doing that, that would be a cheaper option, they would jump at the chance to sit still for a guaranteed wage.
