Villa Tiepolo Passi

Villa Tiepolo Passi

In Carbonera, just outside Treviso, stands Villa Tiepolo Passi, a magnificent example of a Vincenzo Scamozzi-school, early Venetian Baroque style post-Palladian Villa Veneta.

The Villa, first occupied around the beginning of the 16th century, was enlarged to its current size a century later with a commission from Ermolao Tiepolo, procurator of San Marco and senator of the Republic of Venice.

In the 19th century, it was passed down to the Passi de Preposulo Counts, an illustrious ancient family originally from the Bergamo area, who still live in the Villa today.

The Villa has Sansovino-style ceilings on the ground floor and 17th-century frescoes by Pietro Antonio Cerva Bolognese on the first floor.

Outside the Villa, the grand yard is watched over by the busts of the philosophers Democritus and Heraclitus who see the sun rise and set on the winter solstice (December 21st), an unequivocal symbol of the role of agriculture at the Villa (the end and the beginning of the agrarian season) and of the human condition.

The elegant Italianate garden with its fish pond and statues by Torretto (Canova’s maestro) stretches out into monumental perspective, one of the rare remaining examples of this sort of Veneto countryside from the period of the Serenissima – the Most Serene Republic.

The Family Chapel, with its Plenary Indulgence granted by Pope Pius VI, there are frescoes by Giovan Battista Canal (Canaletto’s nephew) and ceiling paintings by the school of Tiepolo. In the eastern part of the grounds, connected to the park, is the original Brolo (vegetable garden and orchard), with 500 organically-cultivated plants.

Villa Tiepolo Passi is a charming cultural tourism destination, open to visitors for guided visits, events and refined hospitality.
