Presentation

It is the northernmost ?Villa Veneta?, and it is located in the main square of Agordo, in the Province of Belluno. It represents a unique structural mixture due to the passing of centuries, and it dates back to at least 1365. In the 16° century, it was bought by family Crotta, who amplified its extension. In the 19° century, it became property of the art-loving family De? Manzoni, who embellished it furtherly. The façade overlooking the town square is built in an urban style, while the most hidden one, overlooking a wide private park, shows the typical aspect of the country residences. Some of its remarkable features include a garden surrounded by 15 Classic-themed statues, a porch, and ?la Toresèla? (?the small tower?), which is a Neo-Gothic style building separated from the main part. The stables host the Luxottica Eyeware Museum. The villa is currently usable for external views, while the interior is accessible on special occasions only.
