Villa Corner Chiminelli is a Venetian Villa dating back to the late 16th century. Its facade and piano nobile were completely frescoed by Benedetto Caliari, the brother of Paolo Veronese.
Villa Corner Chiminelli is a magnificent example of what today is known as the “Villa Civilization”. Built as the summer residence of a Venetian noble family, it was the venue of leisure, hunting and literary activities, but also an agricultural center with vineyards and wine cellars, a brolo (orchard), and a large farming estate.
An Italian-style garden is found in front of the Villa, which is enclosed by an ancient frescoed wall on the eastern side and includes a fountain, fine hard stone statues and archeological relics.
A private chapel opens onto the entrance gate. Today, Villa Corner Chiminelli is open to guests for events and guided tours.
The rural out-buildings host the Farming and Tanning Museum, where visitors can view a collection of old farming tools, as well as over a hundred machines and tools from the tanning industries of the Bassano area.
