History of the colonnade of Villa Corner Smania

A timeless scene that retains all the original charm.

The colonnade of Villa Corner, Vendramin Zucconi, then Villa Smania, was built in the 1600s as an annex to the adjacent Villa Barbarigo Fontana. In the second half of the 18th century it was acquired by the property of Villa Corner Vendramin and merged with it.

Originally used as a cellar and granary at the service of the agricultural funds behind the Villa, it represents a typical example of the Venetian colonnade with the characteristic porticoed structure with round arches, half pillars, string courses and ogival windows.
The building has recently been completely restored, while maintaining the original stylistic and architectural features intact.
