Villa Manzoni Valcasara

Villa Manzoni Valcasara

Originally built in the early 16th century, Villa Manzoni Valcasara is believed to be the work of Anonio Francesco Olivero, a disciple of the architect Michele Sammicheli from Verona.

The Villa is a good example of 16th-century Vicenza architecture, still featuring the original terracotta floors and wood beamed coffered ceilings.

According to the scholarship, the frescoes in the main hall – depicting women, putti, ornaments and flowers – can be attributed to Paolo Caliari, also known as “Veronese”.

The rural buildings, visible from the front garden, are decorated with imposing embossed columns that are based on ancient Roman models revisited by Sammicheli.

The estate also includes a family chapel, dedicated to Saint Rita, which is still in use.

Villa Manzoni Valcasara is surrounded by lush vineyards making the Villa even more charming.
