Rocca Pisana History
Rocca Pisana is a Venetian villa designed by Vincenzo Scamozzi in Palladian style in 1576.
The villa is located near Lonigo, on a hill overlooking the Vicenza plain. This detachment from the "underlying life", combined with the symbiosis between the building, which opens up to the sky and the woods, and the surrounding nature conveys the sensation of being in the building and at the same time outside, surrounded by nature. The client Vettor Pisani was a Venetian nobleman who already owned extensive land properties in the Lonigo-Bagnolo area.
In the Treatise "The idea of universal architecture" Vincenzo Scamozzi adds the date of 1576 next to the description of the Rocca Pisana, which probably corresponds to the end of the works. The structure was erected on the remains of an ancient fortress, called Rocca, destroyed by Ezelino da Romano, from which it takes its name.
The stay in Villa Rocca Pisana allows guests to fully experience and breathe the past through the unique flavor of these historic walls. You can sleep in the rooms under the dome or decide to wake up next to the cool private garden. The villa has 13 beds divided into 8 rooms, 5 of which are double and 3 single with the possibility of reaching a maximum of 16-17 beds; and 7 bathrooms.
