Villa Wollemborg

Villa Wollemborg, a splendid residence located in Loreggia, Padua, captivates visitors with its timeless majesty and charm. Originally constructed in the 15th century as a seasonal retreat by the Polcastro family of Padua, the villa has undergone numerous transformations and expansions over the centuries, resulting in its current magnificent neoclassical structure.

The villa's original core was built in the first half of the 15th century, serving as a summer residence for the Polcastro family to relish the mild climate and breathtaking surrounding landscape. The initial phase of construction focused on creating a simple yet elegant architecture that harmoniously blended with the natural environment.

During the 17th century, Villa Wollemborg underwent significant expansion. The barns were notably enlarged to accommodate agricultural activities and storage, while a new east wing was added, standing grandly with four stories, providing additional living spaces and enhancing the villa's imposing and functional aspects.

Furthermore, during the 17th century, a "brolo" garden was created within the enclosing walls, adorned with fruit trees and ornamental plants. This garden offered a serene and tranquil oasis for the villa's residents, complementing the luxurious and serene atmosphere.

The current appearance of Villa Wollemborg dates back to the early 19th century when the momentous wedding between Girolamo Polcastro and Caterina Querini Stampalia, a Venetian noblewoman, took place. On this occasion, the villa underwent substantial restoration and reorganization, acquiring the captivating aspect that continues to be admired today. The renovation project was entrusted to the Venetian architect Luigi Giuseppe Jappelli, renowned for his neoclassical style and refined taste.

Jappelli made various modifications and extensions, including the restoration and adaptation of the rectangular pond, which became a focal point in the landscaped garden. The pond was enriched with aquatic plants and designed to reflect the villa's beauty and its enchanting surroundings, creating a magical and evocative ambiance.

Over the subsequent centuries, Villa Wollemborg underwent several changes of ownership due to testamentary events. In the late 19th century, it was acquired by the Querini Stampalia Foundation of Venice, which later transferred ownership to the Wollemborg family in 1870. The Wollemborg family proudly held possession for a century, playing a key role in preserving the villa's magnificence and its rich historical and artistic heritage. Leone Wollemborg, a member of the family, notably founded the first rural savings bank in Italy within the villa's library.

In 1970, Villa Wollemborg found a new family of owners, the Gomiero, who continue to cherish and nurture the villa's exceptional history and cultural significance.

Today, Villa Wollemborg stands as the renowned venue for a restaurant specialized in hosting banquets and events. Guests have the unique opportunity to savor culinary delicacies while surrounded by the grandeur of the historic architecture and enchanting landscaped gardens.
