Yesterday’s jewel, a treasure of today
Shortly after 1554, Marco Zeno bought the Cessalto estate and commissioned Andrea Palladio in the building of his new residency in the Trevigiano area. And so, Villa Zeno was born and went on to be considered one of the most well-known works of Palladio. Today, the villa has been accredited by UNESCO the title of world heritage site. The villa remains the property of direct ascendants of the Zeno family and is a gem of Venetian history which is slowly being restored to its former glory.
