Villa Valmarana ai Nani

Villa Valmarana ai Nani is a Venetian villa outside Vicenza. This villa is famous for the extraordinary cycle of frescoes by Giambattista Tiepolo (who painted the villa in the period of its greatest artistic splendor) and his son Giandomenico.

The nickname “ai Nani” refers to the 17 stone sculptures representing the dwarves, that you can see now lined up on the surrounding wall.

The villa is still inhabited by the noble family of Valmarana, but anyway it is open to the public six days a week, like the nearby Villa Capra called “La Rotonda” by Palladio, owned by another branch of the family Valmarana.

Address: Piazza Giacomo Matteotti, 37/39.
