Until some time ago, the name «Collina d'Oro» was associated with a region. But the municipal elections held in April 2004 marked the birth of the new Municipality of Collina d'Oro, which was created by merging Agra, Gentilino and Montagnola. The new commune has a population of more than 4,300 and covers a surface area of 649 hectares.
Collina d'Oro has a peaceful location and is primarily residential in character.
A substantial part of the hill is covered with woods that offer the inhabitants a chance to go for quiet walks, far from the noise of traffic, to discover beauty spots with magnificent views.
It is probably because of this peaceful location that the hill has been chosen as home over the years by many illustrious people and is still a favourite destination with many tourists.
I am very honoured to be the first Mayor of Collina d'Oro and to have the opportunity to work for this community, trying to make the quality of everybody's life here even better.
