Villa Tiepolo Passi: “Culture and Taste” guided tour & tasting. Individual Ticket | Weekend in Italy
Villa Tiepolo Passi, a magnificent example of a post-Palladian Venetian Villa in elegant Venetian Baroque style, is located just outside Treviso, some 40 km/25 miles outside of Venice. The Villa dates from the early 1600s, but reached its current size over the next century under its owner at the time, Ermolao Tiepolo, Procurator of San Marco and Senator of the Venetian Republic. During the 1800s, the Villa, enriched and embellished over the centuries by artists, passed to the Counts Passi de Preposulo, an ancient, illustrious family from Bergamo that still lives there.
On the main floor you can admire frescoes from the 17th century by Pietro Antonio Cerva (called “il Bolognese”).
Villa Tiepolo Passi overlooks an elegant Italian garden with fish pond and statuary by Torretto (teacher of Canova) that unfolds in a monumental perspective. The edges of the romantic English park are shaped by mounds, caves, and ancient trees. In the private chapel, you will see ceiling frescoes by Giovan Battista Tiepolo Canal and school.
