Northern Italian villas near Vicenza Italy - Itinerary 5

Itinerary 5 is about 51 kilometers and can easily be done by rental car from Bob and Jenny's Bed and Breakfast.  Other nearby villas not pictured here which can be visited include Villa Negri Ceroni, Villa Erizzo Schiavinato, Villa Rasia Dani Villa Saraceno Bettanin, Villa Repeta Bressan, Villa Eolia, Villa Garzadori Da Schio, Villa Trento Valmarana D'Aremberg Carli and Villa Gazzotti Marcello Curti.

 

Villa Conti

Decorated with 164 statues in the garden from the workshop of O. Marinali, Villa Conti in Montegaldella underwent numerous changes since its original design in 1622.  Especially interesting are the statues representing characters from the Commedia dell'Arte.  "La ruota" (The wheel) monument behind the villa represents the four corners of the world.  Also of interest are the wrought-iron gates of the villa.

Castello Grimani Sorlini

Decorated in the 18th century, Castello Grimani Sorlini overlooks Montegalda, about 15 kilometers from Vicenza.  The castle dates back to 1176 with some of the statues by Marinali.  Also of interest is the interior court and the well kept park and gardens.

Villa Ferramosca

Built by G.D. Scamozzi, father of the well known Vincenzo Scamozzi, Villa Ferramosca dates back to 1560.  The villa stands proudly in Barbano di Grisgnano, and resembles much of Andrea Palladio's works with its columns and other Palladian themes.  The small loggia on the east side facade is of particular interest.

Villa Da Porto Rigo

Another villa with Palladian themes is Villa Da Porto Rigo, built in the late 16th century in Vancimuglio.  The villa's balanced design, along with the pronaos and large columns supporting the triangular tympanum give it elegance and dignity.

Ville Da Porto

Just outside of Vicenza in Torri Di Quartesolo stand two curious structure - Ville Da Porto.  The first building (now Slaviero near the bridge over the river) was built in 1570 for Paolina Da Porto.  The second building (now Rigon) was built in the 16th century but restored later in the 17th century.

Villa Trissino Muttoni

The architect who altered the original Gothic construction in the late 15th or early 16th century must have been a follower of L. da Bologna, as evidenced by the four-light window in the center and other windows.  The facade exhibits early Renaissance features while the side windows are all that remain of the original Gothic structure.  The 18th century frescoes inside are by unknown artists.

Villa Ghislanzoni Del Barco Curti

Completely renovated in 1764, Villa Ghislanzoni Del Barco Curti in Bertesina was originally built in 1570.  The villa has acquired a pre-neoclassical look, and may be the work of architect A. Gaidon of Bassano.  Of particular interest is the long Doric portico on the left hand side of the villa and its immense park with well kept lawn in front of the white facade.
