Villa Godi Malinverni

Villa Godi Malinverni

Villa Godi Malinverni is the first Villa ever built by the architect Andrea Palladio, in 1542; it belongs to the UNESCO World Heritage Site: “City of Vicenza and the Palladian Villas of Veneto”.

The Villa was commissioned by Gerolamo Godi and is a magnificent example of Palladian architecture: the piano nobiles of the main body host 9 halls frescoed by great artists, such as Gualtiero Padovano, Gianbattista Zelotti and Battista del Moro, and are furnished with Italian original pieces from the 17th and 18th centuries.The barchessas to the sides, also designed by Palladio, used to be working areas where the daily life of the Villa took place.

Villa Godi Malinverni faces the Astico Valley and is surrounded by wonderful historical gardens decorated with marble statues by Albanese and Marinali, with century-old trees, miles of paths, as well as ponds and fountains. One of the pavillons in the park hosts the Museum of Fossils founded in 1952.

Villa Godi Malinverni is where Palladio's architectural principles were first realized. The Villa is open to the public all year around and is the venue of prestigious events and initiatives.
