In this chapter we discuss one of the most beautiful buildings in the Euganean Hills, with one of the most amazing gardens in the province of Padova, Villa Barbarigo.
Villa Barbarigo Pizzoni Ardemani is a seventeenth-century Venetian villa, commissioned by the Venetian nobleman Francesco Zuane Barbarigo, located in Valsanzibio di Galzignano Terme, in the Regional Park of the Euganean Hills. A hilly area that hides picturesque villages, unspoiled nature and a wide range of typical products to try. This fairy-tale villa has a very simple structure, immersed in a fifteen-hectare paradise, where once you could go through canals up to Venice, through the Sant’Eusebio Valley.
Going beyond the gates, one of the most sumptuous and elegant Italian gardens in the area opens up before our eyes, and has recently been awarded the international prize as "The most beautiful garden in Europe", and still preserves an articulated system of fountains all working.
The magnificent seventeenth-century garden, designed by the architect Luigi Bernini, is crossed by numerous paths that lead to the many waterfalls, to the labyrinth in boxwood, to the various ponds, to the galleries of the hornbeams and to the seventy statues with engraved didactic mottos.
Also not to be missed is the island of rabbits, which symbolizes the overcoming of man's limits through procreation, here is the choice of the rabbit, the most prolific rodent in nature. In contrast we find the Statue of Time, which reproduces an elderly person with wings, to symbolize Time, within which the human spirit makes its way to reach the path of perfection. Villa Barbarigo is a perfect place to immerse yourself in art and nature, thanks to the care of this precious park and its numerous works present.
