Malgrate

“That branch of the Lake of Como, which turns toward the south between two unbroken chains of mountains, presenting to the eye a succession of bays and gulfs, formed by their jutting and retiring ridges, suddenly contracts itself between a headland to the right and an extended sloping bank on the left, and assumes the flow and appearance of a river.”
from The Betrothed by Alessandro Manzoni

Malgrate is located across from Lecco, from which it is geographically divided by the Lake Como. Malgrate has a wonderful lakeshore which overlooks the mountains and the landscape of Lecco. In the ancient Roman times, the town was known as Antesitum.
