A special event is awaiting you at Villa Tiepolo Passi Carbonera in Italy: a fascinating tour to learn about the history of one of the most powerful families of the Serenissima!
This magnificent example of post-Palladian Venetian Villa was built according to the style of a great representative of the 1500s, Vincenzo Scamozzi… The guide will reveal to you the yesteryear atmosphere of Villa Tiepolo Passi from the very start of the visit: walking through the elegant inner halls finely decorated by artists of the seventeenth century and afterwards in the elegant gardens of the villa, you will experience the authentic charm of this noble manor house.
Your experience at Villa Tiepolo Passi in Treviso, Italy, with tour will start from the main part of the building, the manor house, built in Venetian baroque style: here you will be told the story of the powerful Tiepolo family, one of the founding families of the Venetian Republic, who built the villa between the 16th and 17th centuries.
The visit, starting from the ground floor, winds along the rooms and halls embellished with Sansovino-style ceilings and stuccos where you can admire a unique picture gallery by Frigimelica; it will then continue in the ballroom on the main floor, richly frescoed by Antonio Cerva Bolognese with mythological allegories set against fake architectures decorated with paintings in line with the seventeenth-century fashion.
The guided tour at Villa Tiepolo Passi in Treviso will continue to the outside into the grand Selese watched over by busts of the philosophers Democritus and Heraclitus that gaze at the sun rising and setting on 21st December, unmistakable symbolic references to the agricultural function of the villa. Afterwards, walking through a magnificent Italianate garden stretching out from the front of the building, you will admire a two kilometre long panoramic view. Leisurely walking among the neat square shapes of the box hedges you will admire the central stone fountain, fish pond and statues by Giovanni Torretto (Antonio Canova’s maestro).
The tour will continue in the romantic English-style park that stretches over two hectares on the left and right sides of the Italianate garden, adorned with caves and mounds and more than 40 different species of centuries-old trees. You will then reach the family chapel. This small private chapel, dedicated to Our Lady of the Rosary, was decorated in the last quarter of the eighteenth century by Giambattista Canal (Canaletto’s nephew) and was granted plenary indulgence by Pope Pius VI.
The hospitality offered by the Passi family, who acquired the villa in the mid-nineteenth century out of matrimonial inheritance and still live there today, is proof to a clear desire to safeguard a glorious past, reminiscent of a strong and fruitful bond with the surrounding areas.
