Presentation

Nestled in the green Treviso countryside of Colle Umberto, among the Prosecco hills, Villa Verecondi Scortecci was designed in the 16th century by architect Vincenzo Scamozzi, a pupil of Palladio. The villa contains architectural elements from the Middle Ages to the present day. The ancient tower is from the year 1000, built for military purposes. In its vicinity stands the central villa, which originated as a hunting lodge with horizontally distributed lodgings in the style dictated by Palladio's most illustrious patrician villas. In the center was arranged the banquet hall, served by other side rooms. The walls of the hall and adjacent rooms were embellished in the 17th century with rich stucco decorations in varying reliefs. In 1700 the central building of the chapel, richly stuccoed and dedicated to Our Lady of Health, was added to the main body of the villa. The park was laid out in 1743.
