Villa Cornaro

Villa Cornaro

In the fertile plain of the North-East stands the Villa Cornaro in Piombino Dese, a work by Andrea Palladio (1551-52), in replacement of a house burnt during a war as ancient documents report (1566). It is a monumental villa, which introduces a functional novelty that is the fusion and no longer juxtaposition, in a unique structure of the two functions of utility and recreation.

At one side is the kitchen and the rooms for the farmers and on the other side the rooms for the servants". The interior was frescoed by Mattia Bortoloni and shows scenes of the Old and New Testament.
