The magnificent Venetian villa
Villa Sigurtà is a magnificent Venetian villa used as a summer residence by the Counts Maffei, lords of Valeggio and Monzambano in 1649. It was designed and built by architect Vincenzo Pellesina, who was inspired by the masterpieces of the more famous Palladio. The Veronese architect completed the work at the peak of his career and his style bears witness to the stylistic transition between the decline of the Baroque and the emerging more linear Neoclassical style.
In the tympanum, above the richly frescoed loggia, a plaque recalls the old investiture of the Maffei family. During the wars of the Risorgimento this elegant residence hosted Carlo Alberto, Radetzky (1848) and Napoleon III (1859). Since 2020, it has been open for visitors, with paths between the villa and the magical private garden of about 3 hectares, offering a place full of history, beauty and poetry, where you can spend moments in pleasant company.
