One of the most beautiful Renaissance villas in the Paduan area, it contains an important series of frescoes by G.B.Zelotti, superimposed by Paolo Veronese, and is characterized by its unique planimetry layout? The design was entrusted to the architect Andrea da Valle in 1544 by Girolamo de Roberti, and the works were completed in 1553. The villa is constructed on the ruins of Maccaruffo castle, of which the fourteenth-century tower still remains. Traces of frescoes containing the Carraresi coat of arms are still visible, as is the well in front of the barchessa (late fifteenth century).
While the external decoration of the Brugine palace, depicting scenes of Roman history and Mythology, has been almost completely lost, in the bright Salone Nobile inside, a beautiful series of mythological frescoes dating back to the mid-sixteenth century is still preserved. Work by Giambattista Zelotti and Antonio Fasolo. Paolo Veronese worked on the decoration of overlays. Many modernisations and accommodations date back to the eighteenth century, such as the stuccoes on the Piano Nobile and the beautiful wrought iron gate (1742), while the park perfectly preserves the feel and atmosphere of a romantic English garden; one of the features that made the villa famous when it was built
The barchessa, dating from the fifteenth century, is accented by two large Renaissance chimneys, and outside by eight arches resting on columns with capitals.
