Villa La Civrana

The seventeenth-century  Villa La Civrana , owned by the Emo Capodilista counts, is located in Galzignano Terme and is immersed in its garden close to the Euganean Hills Regional Park. The villa is a simple square building, with a detached church and adjacency and an internal spiral staircase of the Palladian type. Inside the first and second floors it is finely decorated with 17th century frescoes of sacred and mythological scenes, and ornamental landscape motifs.

Villa La Civrana it is an example of continuous expansion and modernization that spans at least two centuries: from the mid-fifteenth century, when the house was made up of a single body on the basement - today's ground floor - first floor and attics, connected by an external staircase to the sixteenth-century structure, marked by the excavation and the release of the basement, which becomes ground floor, and by the construction of the spiral staircase that connects the main floors. The seventeenth-century expansion consists of raising the height of the attics and transforming them into a noble second floor, connected to the first through the straight ramp of the staircase, originally in wood and today in stone, the insertion of the decoration in the openings of the above plan in the typical ways of the century. Inside the park there is a barchessa open in seven arched archways, resting on pillars framed by pilasters doubled at the corners. The small oratory, dedicated to the cult of S. Maria del Carmine, consists of a square cross-vaulted room with a presbytery covered by a hemispherical dome resting on plumes and decorated with a lantern. On the façade the portal is inserted between four Tuscan pilasters that support a triangular tympanum.
