Italian Gardens of the Venetian Villa in Carbonera

Villa Tiepolo Passi looks out over elegant Italian gardens made up of geometrically patterned boxwood hedges. In the centre of the garden one finds an octagonal fountain. A fish pond forms the southern boundary, flanked by two statues, Counsel and Prudence, which were started in 1774 by Torretto, Canova’s teacher, and completed by Giovanni Ferrari who, like Canova, was an apprentice in Torretto’s workshop.
A romantic English garden extends on both sides of the Italian garden, with avenues, ornamental vases, hillocks, grottoes, and centuries-old trees and shrubs (there are more than one hundred and fifty species of trees and shrubs).
A large water wheel, visible from the entry avenue, supplies irrigation to the gardens. In the past it formed a small waterfall used for the production of ice during winter months, which was then preserved in a special grotto. There was also a small lake which served as water reserve for the “brolo” (ortus coclusus), the area used to grow vegetables and small fruit trees in Venetian villas. Today, the dried up basin of the lake and a small stone bridge remain, hidden amongst the trees.
