Presentation

Along the bank of the Tagliamento river, there are the remains of Villa Mocenigo, now Biaggini-Ivancich, compromised by the bombings of the Second World War and the 1976 earthquake. At the end of the seventeenth century, the ?barchesse? were built, attributed to the architect Longhena and defined as "monumental works, among the greatest of historical and artistic interest in the Province of Venice" (Arch. G. Gabrielli Pross, 1983). Villa?s centuries-old park is very large and hosts many varieties of plants, as well as eight statues in Istrian stone representing the four seasons and virtues. The relations of the Biaggini and Ivancich families with internationally renowned novelists and poets were important, including the lasting friendship between Adriana Ivancich and Ernest Hemingway. In the novel "Across the River and Into the Trees" Adriana's inspiration for the female protagonist is clearly recognized.
