Villa Foscarini Rossi is a 17th-century Venetian Villa found in Stra, along the Brenta River near Venice and Padua.
The Villa was built by the Foscarinis, a noble Venetian family, who wanted to celebrate the greatness of their lineage.
To this end, they commissioned famous architect of the time Vincenzo Scamozzi and entrusted the frescoes and decorations to artists like Pietro Liberi and Domenico de' Bruni.
Villa Foscarini Rossi has been opened to the public since the completion of major restoration, which returned the frescoes and architectural design to their original splendor.
Today, the Foresteria (guest quarters) hosts events, receptions and art exhibits, while the halls of the Villa accommodate the museum of footwear.
The museum hosts more than 1500 luxury women's shoes manufactured by the company over 70 years of business and in collaboration with the most prominent fashion designers at an Italian and international level (Fendi, Yves Saint Laurent, Givenchy and many others).
