The story of Villa Troubetskoy
Villino Troubetskoy is a minor 18th century Venetian villa built along the Zero canal to allow guests to reach Venice by water. In the sixties of the twentieth century, the canal has been moved about 200 meters, thus expanding the park.
At the end of the nineteenth century the Villa was bought by the Russian princely family of Troubetskoy as the residence of two Troubetskoy girls, actually illegitimate daughters of the Tsar and thus exiled to Italy.
One of the girls married the Duke of Morny, becoming one of the foremost and most beautiful noblewomen of the Parisian Belle Epoque, while the other sister married a Frankish Russian count.
The following generation, also made up of two sisters, one of whom was a close friend of Francesco Baracca who spent the last night in the villa before being demolished, not only had no descendants but slowly alienated the land surrounding the property. In the fifties of the twentieth century, Count Alberto del Bono, whose family had had friendly relations since the beginning of the century, helped Countess Eleonor Ennes who, on her death, left the villa to the del Bono family.
The villa can be rented as a holiday home, for photo and film shoots, for small receptions, conferences and workshops at any time of the year.
