Villa Rizzo Correr is located in the countryside of the Padua province. The first historical evidence of the villa dates back to the end of the 16th century, when it was owned by the Contarini, an aristocratic Venetian family.
During the first half of the 18th century the property was turned into a Benedictines monastery. There is no de nite evidence about the original shape and layout of the building, however historical cartography shows that the central body of the villa and the side wings already existed by the first half of the 18th century.
Such central body was and still is the owner’s family residence, whereas the side wings used to serve as farming facilities. This housing-farming combination allowed the optimization of the property management.
Recently the villa has been completely renovated with careful preservation of its historical value and the family-oriented living space. At the same time, the side wings were turned into new and modern spaces through functional restoration. Nowadays, the villa is equipped with all the necessary facilities to host any kind of event and business activity.
