Brenta River – Villa 2

Veneto Villas

Villa in Brenta River n.2

The Villa belongs to the rich artistic treasures collectively known as the Villas of the Veneto region. The Barchessa is all that remains of the 17th century Villa Valmarana which originally consisted of two Barchesse, one emerging from each side of the central villa.  Until the end of the 17th century, the Barchessa was that part of the Villa used for agriculture, as grainary, and under whose immense porch boats were stored so they wouldn’t disturb the flow of traffic along the Brenta canal if just tied along shore.  The interior of the Villa was decorated completely.
