Treviso was the “granary” of Venice and its mills produced flour which, together with the timber from the “Cansiglio” for the construction of ships, were transported to Venice across the Sile river. One of these mills for the production of cornmeal adjacent to the Villa, on the other side of the river Storga, is still in operation.

An elegant and charming place
Ancient maps show that during the eighteenth century, there were three factories, the one further upstream was an integral part of the Sunday complex, while today it is part of another property. On the façade, towards the garden, there is a tempera decoration depicting among other things “Mercury with Winged Helm” protector of the merchants.
From a map of the early eighteenth century, it is clear that the villa, of considerable size, had a façade facing via Callalata characterized by a central arched tympanum flanked by two dormer windows decorated with lateral volutes.
Currently the Venetian Villa stands on two floors with a high attic, flanked by two lower symmetrical buildings, which are characterized by the upper terraces protected by wrought iron balustrades, designed with “liberty” motifs. The two main facades are very different from each other, a symbol of various transformations made to the building over time.
