The villa today
Marco Zeno’s direct descendents are today involved in the restoration and conservation of the villa which has become an important part of Italian architectural and cultural heritage. This has been further made possible thanks to the donation of the “Gal Terre di Marca”. This permitted the restoration of the roof, both the primary and secondary wooden structures, all the external doors and windows, ceilings and plastering.
The villa has also been the object of numerous studies carried out by the “Università di Padova” and the “Università di Venezia” as well as a survey conducted by the architect C. Di Thiene on behalf of the “Istituto Ville Venete”. In addition to these studies a schemealso exists to attract sponsors interested in investing in important cultural and entrepreneurial projects connected to the villa’s existing heritage.
