Villa Emo

In this chapter we discuss one of the most historic and characteristic buildings in the province of Treviso, located in Fanzolo, Villa Emo.

Fanzolo is a fraction of the municipality of Vedelago, located between the walled city of Castelfranco Veneto and the village of Asolo in the province of Treviso. This quiet town of the March of Treviso offers several historic buildings, such as Villa Lion Pellizzer and Villa Appiani, now a nursery school.From the historical-artistic point of view, however, it is important not to miss the sixteenth-century Villa Emo, designed by architect Andrea Palladio, a building that manages to blend classic and rustic architectural elements. The exteriors are essential, without decorations, while the interiors are richly decorated with frescoes by Giovanni Battista Zelotti, a disciple of the Veronese.
