You might find your answer from this:

“The most famous lakes in Italy are in what is sometimes called the Italian Lake District, in the north of the country not far from the Alps. That anglicised description is evocative of the area’s poetic and literary connections. Beloved of the romantic poets as well as later writers, statesmen and royalty, the northern Italian lakes are beautiful and atmospheric, where mountains descend to meet the lakeshore, and stately grand hotels dominate pretty lakeside towns. Lake Garda, Lake Como and Lake Maggiore are particularly famous and have been popular for centuries with English, American, German and other international tourists.”

That appears at this website:

I agree that it might be Como.

In Italian, it is Lago di Como and Lago di Lugano, since they are place names. Lago Maggiore = big lake.

In French it is le lac de Côme. So I would speculate that the Portuguese would have a parallel construction. ( I just found the translation to Portuguese = Lago de Como.)
