About Villa and Castle Emo Capodilista

The Capodilista, one of the most noble and powerful Paduan families, asked in 1586 the celebrated painter and architect Dario Varotari to build for their pleasure a hunting lodge at the center of their vast properties. The villa, thanks to the presence of open loggias on all four sides, to intercept the flight of birds, took so the shape of a bird snare, suitable for fowling. But Varotari, pupil of Paolo Veronese and father of Alessandro (better known as the Padovanino), was to much a brilliant artist not to design this masterpiece of him as a princely residence, completely decorated with mithological frescoes both inside and outside. Centuries afterwards the counts Capodilista and the noble venetian family of the Emo joined their names. From them descends the present owner, Giordano Emo Capodilista, who runs the property and the winery.
