Villa Valmarana

Villa Valmarana foresteria1  - dimore storiche italiane

Villa Valmarana ai Nani in Vicenza is a complex formed by the house (1657), the Foresteria and Scuderia (1720), to designs by Francesco Muttoni. It takes its name from the statues of the 17 dwarves on the wall, probably of Giandomenico Tiepolo drawing.

The Palazzina and the Foresteria have frescoes by Giambattista and Giandomenico Tiepolo, called in 1757 by Giustino Valmarana.

His descendants still live in the Villa, which is universally regarded as the expressive peak of the eighteenth century painting and the testimony of the highest genius of Tiepolo.

Villa Valmarana ai Nani in Vicenza is a complex formed by the house (1657), the Foresteria and Scuderia (1720), to designs by Francesco Muttoni. It takes its name from the statues of the 17 dwarves on the wall, probably of Giandomenico Tiepolo drawing.

The Palazzina and the Foresteria have frescoes by Giambattista and Giandomenico Tiepolo, called in 1757 by Giustino Valmarana.

In the house, painted by his father, and in the guest quarters, the work of the child, you can catch the different matrices that inspired the two artists: the vocation to the “sublime” by Giambattista and that the “natural” by Giandomenico. The themes of the frescoes are taken care by the readings in Giustino Valmarana: Iliad, Aeneid, Orlando Furioso, Jerusalem Delivered and the immense sacrifice of Iphigenia in the central hall.

In the Foresteria, except the Olympus room, designed by his father, all the other frescoes by Giandomenico who abandons the classic themes in favor of the zeitgeist: the exoticism (Room of Cineserie), the nobles of the world (Room of Holiday, one of the first examples of neo-Gothic style in Italy), and that of the people (Room Peasants), caprice and irony (the “World Room Novo”, with figures of masks and charlatans).

In the salon she is also exposed the only portrait of Palladio, who worked long for Valmarana.
