Villa Tiepolo Passi and the Historical Gardens

Excerpt from: “Gardens of Veneto Villas”, by Camilla Zanarotti, Silvana editorial.

The origins of the gardens date back to the Paleovenetian period with the presence on the site of a fortified settlement, which became a military garrison in Roman times. The villa, dating from the sixteenth century, took on a noble appearance in the following century thanks to Ermolao Tiepolo, Procurator of San Marco and senator of the Venetian Republic. He decided to build a magnificent palace-cum-manor house in the centre of his extensive agricultural land. In the mid-XIX century, the property passed to the ancient Passi de Preposulo family from Bergamo.

The strategic location of the entire complex can still be perceived when looking along the extraordinary avenue that extends for more than 1.55 miles along the southern side of the villa and the back, to the north, as far as the centre of the village of Carbonera.

The villa’s main building, built in a Venetian Baroque style, is flanked by two symmetrical wings positioned in a half gammadion cross. Sober buildings to the rear house stables, barns and cellars. The front is home to a spectacular Italian-style garden with flower beds lined with boxwood and splendidly trimmed yew trees, enclosed on one side by attractive Romantic-style gardens with an icehouse, caves and centuries-old trees.
