Villa Barbaro and Villa Emo

 


Not very far from the previous, is Villa Emo at Fanzolo di Vedelago. This large villa was the centre of a farming estate designed by Palladio, with frescos by Giambattista Zelotti, a painter influenced by Paolo Veronese who on many occasions worked with Palladio on some of his interiors.
