Villa Sandi is a beautiful example of a Venetian Villa, dating back to 1622, build in the style of the famous architect Andrea Palladio with the characteristic Roman and Greek influences, with rooms decorated with stuccoes and bass-relieves and dominated by Murano glass chandeliers.
When the Venetian Republic expanded, between the 14th and 15th century, to the Veneto Mainland, the Venetian aristocracy, until then mainly involved with merchant trading from which they received good incomes, became very interested in increasing their possessions of large pieces of land accompanied by large investments in agriculture, among which also vineyards producing the now world famous Prosecco.
The symbol of this wealth was the Venetian villa, sumptuously decorated and used by the family as holiday home during the summer months.
