"Today little ensembles still have a so extensive and whole ambit and it can be enjoyed like the built-time” (Venetian Villa Regional Institute).
A benedictine community is certified in documents of 1.034 with name “Casa murada” (“Wall home”). In the municipality of Maserà (14 km from Padova) the medieval village Ca’ Murà (little church, Villa and farm-houses) is the best site, both historical and environmental.
About this monastery now there is only the Oratory of Saints Eurosia and Stefano: here Saint Francesco and Saint Antonio stopped.
A few meters and you can see Villa Petrobelli: they built it at the end of XVII th century. Petrobelli Counts used this accomodation during the Summer because here it was cold and there were to pay attention about the agricoltural harvest. In the historical garden there are still the well and the stone-court to drying cors.
The map of the Villa is tipically venetian: square, two floors, attics and two symmetrical facades.
The internal distribution shows a big central saloon with four sides rooms. In the ground floor saloon there is the Petrobelli painting. The saloon at the first floor opens in a big window with balustrade in local stone and noble family arms in the center.
Villa has laterally two porches: they have two floors and were used for agricoltural functions: barns for hay and wheat, stables for cows and horses, cellery and carriages-stores.
In the 1811 the noblewoman Eloisa Petrobelli married the famous Giuseppe Jappelli, neoclassic architect of Pedrocchi Caffè and Treves Park in Padova.
