Villa Ferri, also known as “Ser Ugo's castle” is named after the Ser Ugo family from Casale who owned a large part of those lands. The imposing façade of the mansion is the result of the enlargement of a house -tower, which helped defenses as well as served as a home. The villa still keeps a few parts of the original structure such as a section of the tower integrated in the present construction, the Romanesque style windows on the North side and the sequence of blind arches of the frame; the entrance portal and the French window in the centre with a balcony dates back to the 16th and 17th centuries. Villa Ferri also keeps a wonderful cycle of astrological frescoes which date back to the 15th century and seem to echo those frescoes in the Palazzo della Ragione in Padua. A legend says that this “ancient Venetian villa”, as they name it in Casalserugo, was connected to another house by a secret tunnel.
The gardens of Villa Ferri or “Castel Ser Ugo” host a venue of cultural events and entertainment in the summer. Nowdays, it hosts the town library.
