This is the central part of the villa. According to historical cartography, the master house existed by mid 18th century – actually, its architectonical features are typical of that period.
The first renovation was performed in 1983, allowing its conservation.
Since its origins, this house has been characterized by the fine quality of its finishing as demonstrated by traces of imitation-ashlar décor, similar to the one found in the master house basement, and by the beautiful entrance embellished by ashlar stone.
Inside the house a double archway can be found next to the staircase, which dates back to between the 15th and the 16th century. As far as the finishing is concerned, the pink Venetian “terrazzo” floors and the new bathrooms with made-to-measure stone sinks are the most remarkable ones.
The east wing is currently destined to office space and/or conference rooms and event spaces. It is probably the most fascinating part of the villa, both for its exquisite aesthetics and for its intact preservation state.
The new business and event-related function of the east wing was achieved by greatly preserving the original structure of this unit to celebrate its historical, environmental and architectural value. The current design and layout of this wing is functional was achieved through a modern interpretation of its original farming-housing purpose.
The most remarkable space of the east wing is the former stable with a four-round-arch portico, now turned into a multi-media room, a fascinating setting both for its exquisite aesthetics and for its intact preservation state.
This dwelling unit has been renovated and modified several times. The remains of arch structures are still visible in both floors.
The recent renovation turned this unit into a functional, modern house with its elm floors, the monolithic-looking white kitchen and the Vicenza stone and glass staircase
The West Wing used to host cattle staples with a barn, storage space and the farmers’ house on the higher floor. The restoring intervention was performed to create complementing spaces for the central body with high-end features.
The seven-round-arch portico serves as a sitting area during the warmer part of the year. The unit features an indoor swimming pool on the ground floor and a multi-purpose space destined for both corporate and social events on the first floor. This space overlooks the outdoor portico and the swimming pool area, as well as the whole property and its different units. A peripheral view of the villa in its entirety can be enjoyed through
the several windows created along the wall.
This fitness and wellness area is equipped with changing rooms, bathrooms, showers, a sauna and a steam room.
Dedicated to Saint Philip Neri, this chapel was originally created for the aristocratic Venetian families living in the villa. It was designed with a main rectangular aisle and two rectangular side aisles.
The unit still shows its original architectonical features, despite the many renovations to the outdoor area of the villa, especially during the 1990s.
Under the big clock on one of the façades reads a quote from “Prometheus Bound” by Aeschylus: “Time, as it grows old, teaches all things.”
Insegna tutto, maturando, il tempo
(Aeschylus, 5th century b. C.)
