Visitors will be guided by our staff through the Gardens of Villa Widmann-Borletti, a perfect Italian garden adorned with a rich collection of citrus groves and luxuriant hedges of hornbeam. Of great interest are the historic granaries of the XVII century: two of the largest and best preserved barns in the Country, now used as conference rooms and prestigious location for events. The biggest barn is highly impressive due to its truss: a genuine architectural masterpiece.

Further information
Upon commission by Ludovico Widmann, Villa Widmann-Borletti was built in 1656 by architect Baldassarre Longhena, on the site of a large Benedictine monastery dating back from the year 1000. The sumptuous and elegant residence of the Venetian Count Widmann soon became a holiday resort for nobles and artists. Among the most illustrious guests was Carlo Goldoni, who wrote and represented in the theater of the villa some of his famous comedies, playing himself among the actors from time to time.
Of great beauty and historical interest is the garden adorned with 160 sculptures, among which you can admire statues representing Greek gods and zodiac signs. The most notable statues representing the characters of the Commedia dell'Arte carved by Antonio Bonazza (1742), are lodged into a Teatro di Verzure (verdure theatre) and represent the moment of greatest decorative expression of the scupltor. Nowadays these stone characters are revived with an impressive show of son et lumière (by reservation).
 
No to be missed is a visit to the ancient historical cellars.
