Capital Region Living Magazine Invited to Lake Como



Vikki Moran, Publisher of Capital Region Living Magazine recently visited the Grand Tremezzo Villa in Lake Como, Italy as the only travel journalist representing upstate NY. The trip, at the request of the property, was to showcase the newly renovated hotel and the surrounding area to leading travel writers. Mrs. Moran was joined on the trip by writers representing The Boston Globe, Travel + Leisure, The New York Times, Conde Nast Traveler and Architectural Digest and others. Mrs. Moran was selected to represent Upstate New York publications based on the quality, content, and regard of the magazine.

The Villa will be used to host elaborate weddings, romantic dining experiences and exclusive events reserved only for guests of Grand Hotel Tremezzo. Mrs. Moran experienced the grandeur of this Villa during the trip.

From 1883 to 2018 the means of drilling and blasting has changed, but the process has remained consistent; and so has the uniqueness of the Callanan family operation. It’s what has led employees to stay with the company for 30 years or more. With a woman at the helm of the most formative years of the company—something unheard of at the time—an…
