Presentation

Villa Cordellina Lombardi, the representative seat of the Province of Vicenza, is located in Montecchio Maggiore. It was built between 1735 and 1760 to a design by Venetian architect Giorgio Massari, who was inspired by the art of Palladio, particularly for the four-column Ionic pronaos surmounted by a tympanum with the Cordellina family crest. The complex consists of the main residence, the two side barchesse that house stables and guest quarters, the gatehouse "turrets," and a rustico. The main hall of the villa is decorated with frescoes by Giambattista Tiepolo, depicting the exploits of Scipio Africanus and Alexander the Great. The building's large outdoor space features the noble court with a statues-rich garden at the front, while the rear encloses the courtyard and another garden with a fountain.
