Villa Barbaro

Villa Barbaro (also known as Villa Barbaro Basadonna Manin Giacomelli Volpi) in Maser (Treviso) is a Venetian villa built by Andrea Palladio between 1554 and 1560 for the humanist Daniele Barbaro and his brother Marcantonio Barbaro, ambassador of the Republic of Venice.

The project involved transforming the family’s Medieval palace into a splendid country residence suitable for studying art and intellectual contemplation. The villa is decorated with a fresco cycle that is considered to be one of Paolo Veronese’s masterpieces. The villa complex, which also includes a small Palladian chapel, was added, together with other Palladian villas in Veneto, to the list of UNESCO World Heritage sites in 1996.
