Villa Tiepolo Passi is built in the Venetian Baroque style. On the ground floor of the dominican house sansovina ceilings e seventeenth century Venetian painting; on the noble floor, sumptuous frescoes by Pietro Antonio Cerva, called il Bolognese (1674-75). Outside, large selese with busts of philosophers Democritus and Heraclitus, miragli of an ancient sundial, and fish pond adorned by the statues of Wisdom and Prudence, works by Giuseppe Bernardi and his nephew Giovanni Ferrari, called the Torretti (around 1770), which had as a shop the young Antonio Canova.
Beyond the Italian garden with fountain and ornamental vases, in the historic romantic park is the noble chapel built in 1774, immediately after the original fire. Frescoed in a tepid style from Giambattista Canal, last skilled painter of the "fa presto" current, this church, still a place of worship, is dedicated to Our Lady of the Rosary and Pope Pius VI granted you a plenary indulgence.
At the back of the Villa, stables, garages, barns, cellars and guest quarters: beautifully restored, they rediscover ancient functions opening up to hospitality. Beyond the bridge over the Rio Piovensan are cultivated vineyards, orchards and lawns.
The first settlement of Villa Tiepolo Passi dates back to the beginning of the '500 and the Villa reached its present size a century later according to the stylistic features of Vincenzo Scamozzi, a pupil of Palladio, for the commission of Ermolao Tiepolo, prosecutor of San Marco and senator of the Serenissima Republic .
The Villa stands on the ancient embankment of a Paleovenetian Castelliere, which later became a Roman military garrison (castrum). The place is geographically strategic: the extraordinary perspective avenue that extends in front of the Villa and its extensions that look with a perfect straight line Venice to the south and Belluno and Cortina to the north, along the path of the Piave Valley.
In the 800 the Villa, enriched and embellished over the centuries by famous artists, becomes by parental channels Conti Passi de Preposulo, an ancient family of Bergamo origin, who still live there.
During the Great War it will become an Army Corps Command and then an Italian Red Cross hospital: King Victor Emmanuel stayed there, the general Diaz and Cadorna e Hemingway injured.
