Riviera Del Brenta, Italy

In the period running between the 16th and the 18th centuries, some of the most important families from Venice had their summer residences built on the Riviera that runs alongside the Brenta river, a waterway that connects Venice to Padua. The most famous architects and painters of the period, such as Palladio and Tiepolo, were hired to create what was to become the symbol of the aristocratic families grandeur and wealth: the Venetian Villas.
Andrea Palladio created a type of architectural building that brought together Classical elements copied from the villas of the Roman Empire era and original characteristics such as the barchessa, a kind of annex that stood alongside the central part of the building.
