Villa Arvedi has a prominent history. Documents show that it was the property of the illustrious Della Scala family as early as the 13th century. The extant building dates back to around 1650 and reflects the design of the architect G. B. Bianchi. After many vicissitudes, it was acquired by the Arvedi family, who still live here, in 1824.
The majestic halls of Villa Arvedi are decorated with frescoes by Dorigny, Farinati, Fralezza and Prunati. A baroque chapel, also frescoed by Dorigny, is dedicated to Saint Charles Borromeo who, according to tradition, was hosted in the Villa in 1485, on his way to the Council of Trento. Villa Arvedi's Italian-style garden is famous for its uniqueness and the sophisticated double-fan pattern that characterizes it.
The park also includes a baroque grotto, or nymphaeum.
Villa Arvedi is located near Verona and Lake Garda. Today, in addition to guided tours, the Villa is also the venue of prestigious events which are held in its singularly charming atmosphere.
