Villa Wenner

This post is also available in: Italiano (Italian)

Villa Wenner was designed in the second half of the 19th century by the swiss industrialist Federico Alberto Wenner on Capezzano hill, at Pellezzano in the province of Salerno. This residence of the Wenner’s family, who was the principal promoter of the diffusion of textile industries in Valle dell’Irno, was created by the swiss architect Adolfo Mauku and it was put under the protection of the Ministry of Cultural Heritage in 1984. The Wenner Family owned the building till 1976, since the Scarpa family took possession of it. They still reside here, but use only the first and second floor of the building as the other parts are used as locations for events. The park of the villa is neoclassical, wide and tranquil. It is composed of a wood and two terracings, which leave room for meadows bordered by groups of trees and rows of bushes.

The park is enriched continuously by species of trees coming from all over the world, such as sequoias, Greek firs (Abies cephalonica) and mulberrys from China (Brussonetia papyrifera); there is also an interesting botanical collection which has been catalogued. It is still possible to admire secular specimens like Pinus pinea, the tree of Giuda (Cercis siliquastrum), the camphor tree (Cinnamomum camphora) ed altri.
