The first residential projects for the venetian nobility in the Veneto plains, such as the Pisani Villa-Palace in Montagnana and Cornaro in Piombino Dese. Villa Badoer in Fratta Polesine, Villa Barbaro in Maser and Villa Foscari, also known as ‘la malcontenta, in Mira, and Villa Mocenigo on the Brenta’s banks are the first architectural examples that see the noble residences adjoined to the farmsteads and barnyards.
