Villa Ruzzini

Villa Ruzzini



Visitabile negli orari di apertura degli uffici comunali.



Villanova di Camposampiero’s town hall is a sixteenth century villa modified in the eighteenth century. The central body is embellished on the front towards the square by a projecting body with loggia on the main floor. Its interior preserves a surprise, that being the only object of the cycle frescoed in the living room in the shape of the letter T, by an unknown author: episodes from the incidents of Marco Ruzzini, Capitano da Mar of the Serenissima in 1350 and considered responsible by the government for the defeat endured in a battle on the Island of Eubea (Greece). The frames seem to want to re-instate the ancestor, showing agitated scenes of naval battle and narrating his return to Venice, loaded with gifts for the doge (Duke of Venice).
