In Stra, not far from Venice and Padua, along the Brenta River, near the Pisani Villa, stands the seventeenth-century architectural complex called Villa Foscarini-Rossi. Along the Brenta River, the noble Venetian families built outstanding buildings for spending their holidays, that would reflect their wealth and power.
In accordance with aristocratic customs, the Foscarini family sent for famous architects, such as Vincenzo Scamozzi, Francesco Contini, Giuseppe Jappelli, painters and decorators, such as Pietro Liberi e Domenico de Bruni, and entrusted them with the task of creating and decorating a house that would emphasize the importance of the family.
After a restoration, enhancing the pure architectural lines and the renowned frescoes, the whole complex-Villa and Guest Quarters– has been opened to the public; the halls of the Villa have been converted into a museum site, whereas those of the Guest Quarters now host conferences, meetings, receptions, concerts, exhibitions.
