Thanks to the advent of Most Serene Republic of Venice that brought peace of mind and security in the countryside, around the middle of the fourteenth century, the Villa was born on the hills of Castelrotto as modest country house and belonged long to the humanist Guarino Veronese and his family. It is then purchased by Betteloni family in 1665 and, over the course of three centuries, it was enlarged and decorated with friezes and frescoes, a beautiful Italian garden with hedges (Arch Guglielmo Guglielmi), avenues and tall trees. With the Betteloni, Cesare and Vittorio, the poetic tradition flourishes and the Villa prides itself on having hosted the brotherly friend Aleardo Aleardi and the already famous Giosuè Carducci.
