Mansion for sale Italy
Mansion for sale in Italy built in 1764, this villa in Vicenza is one of the best examples of the Venetian Neoclassicism. Clearly inspired by the Palladio's architectures, the residence is developed on two floors and an attic and has a "T" plan. The great white marble facade has a large stone staircase leading to the porch with four Ionic columns surmounted by an architrave and a pediment on which three eighteenth-century statues representing deities Olympus dominate. The suggestive facade precedes the splendor and elegance of the interiors. From the two sides of the porch you can reach two rooms and from the centre you find a vestibule located between two more rooms and leading to the ancient double-height living room with wooden small balconies to the short sides. The living room is parallel to the facade and, beyond it, there are other two rooms. Upstairs, the plant is almost identical.
The vestibule and the main living room are tastefully decorated with bright frescos and stucco works of the late XVIII century by Paolo Guidolini and Giacomo Ciesa. The rich decorations, the barrel vault of the vestibule, the pavilion vault of the central living room are just some of the elements that make this villa an exclusive residence. Noteworthy are the wooden altar and the frame in stucco with the altar piece of the chapel located on the second floor. In the second half of the XIX century the house was the residence of an important Venetian family that extended the property with rural outbuildings and a "barchessa". This one is surrounded by a courtyard and its structure is in river rocks and arches with cotto ring nuts.
The villa in Italy is surrounded by the vineyards of the countryside of Vicenza and is completed by a beautiful park of 7 hectares. The garden is enclosed by a fence with octagonal turrets at the corners of the enclosure and the entrance is composed by two pillars topped by statues and joined to two small walls with two decorative vases. Certainly one of the most important properties for sale in Veneto.

Vicenza was founded by the natives of Veneto in the XVIII century B.C. and, later, it became subject to the Roman domination. With the barbarian invasions it underwent considerable ravages but, with the coming of the Longobards and then of Charlemagne, it became a prosperous town and a free county. In 1115 Vicenza was a free commune with its own magistracy, its own consuls and with a middle class that was becoming more and more powerful and active.
In 1158 Vicenza with Verona, Padua and Treviso resisted to the invasion of Barbarossa. From 1236 to 1311 Vicenza was subdued first by Frederick II Barbarossa, then by the Ezzelini family and, finally, by the town of Padua. It was with Henry VII that Vicenza went under the guardianship of the Della Scala family, who were benevolent rulers. Their domination lasted for twenty years, but they were defeated in 1387. Only in 1404, with the help of the "Serenissima", Vicenza lived a really prosperous period, that went on, in spite of the plague and the earthquake in 1595, until 1700. In this period art and culture flourished and gave a new appearance to the town and to the territory, thanks to the genius of Andrea Palladio. In 1797, with the Treaty of Campoformio, Vicenza was ceded to Austria, which continued to be annexed to, until 1848, when the inhabitants of Vicenza rose up against the oppression of the Austrians.
In 1866 the town was freed by the troops of Vittorio Emanuele II of Savoy. In the first World War the territory around Vicenza was the place of the bloodiest fights of the war (Monte Grappa, Asiago and Pasubio) and in the second World War the town was bombed by air raids that caused numerous victims and great damage. After the end of the war the inhabitants of Vicenza rebuilt the town in order to give it bagck its lustre and prestige.
