In the historical park of Villa Belvedere in Macherio a former nymphaeum, which was wisely used in the past as a rainwater harvesting impluvium, now becomes a waterfall.

As part of a project of recovery of Historical Park revisited in the early twentieth century by the famous architect Alemagna (who designed Parco Sempione), the new waterfall fits into the context creating a water game that gives sounds and atmosphere, always made with the same stone in the park: the Ceppo della Presolana.
