Villa Emo- Fanzolo

Villa Emo is a Venetian villa built near Fanzolo, in Vedelago, by the architect Andrea Palladio. The work, probably built in 1558, was commissioned by the Emo family in Venice, a family who owned the villa until 2004. It is one of the most successful Palladian villas built when Palladio has been building similar buildings for twenty years. In the design of the villa, the same mathematical proportions were used, both in elevation and in the size of the rooms, employed by Palladio for the rest of his work. Since 1996 it has been inserted by UNESCO into the list of human heritage, along with other palladian villas in the Veneto region and Vicenza "Palladio city". Source:
