VILLA BARBIERI

Dwellings at Padenghe sul Garda

Villa Barbieri, now the town hall of Padenghe, is a magnificent building built in the eighteenth-century style, although some claim it to be older. From an architectural point of view the building is equipped with polygonal shape and has a ground floor, a mezzanine floor and a first floor. The fa├žade has a large entrance with an arch section of stone and large windows fitted with pediment. The hall entrance is very distinctive and charming, worthy of a mansion house as was villa Barbieri, formed by a portico consisting of six columns of Regent pillars with rounded arches and half-pillars against the walls. The ceiling of the porch also has alternatively cross vaults and ribbed vaults shaped for a stylish decoration designed to highlight the ridges and contours. The grand staircase made of marble is also noteworthy. (credits Arianna Florioli)
