Private life in the Venetian Villas | Ca’ Marcello
The secret charm of the life in the villa, where the noble owners live and welcome guests from five centuries, is rediscovered in the private rooms through everyday objects and original furniture.
Spaces reserved to the family
Ca’ Marcello is a Venetian Villa still lived by the noble Venetian family of Marcello who had it built in the sixteenth century.
The owner, Count Marcello, and his family continue to preserve this home with care and passion, leaving intact its original appearance.
The interior houses the eighteenth-century furniture and the many rooms of the house contains original objects that allow the visitor to understand the main features of the life in the villa.
In particular, the private rooms of Ca’ Marcello tell the story of this magnificent manor between passion for the art and daily rural work in the Venetian countryside.
Room reserved for noble women who were housed in a villa, decorated with stucco, the ‘toletta’ (mobile equipped with mirror, combs, powder, perfumes and everything they needed for the beauty care) and ‘comoda’, an high-quality ancestor of the contemporary cabinet.
Bedroom reserved for the owner and his wife. The walls are decorated with stucco works representing typical eighteenth landscapes, fanciful scenery inhabited by bizarre characters, exotic beasts and ancient ruins.
Room dedicated to the noblemen hosted by the owners enriched with three large stucco works representing Hercules, the virtues and vices. The room has a curious ‘secret’ passage that connects this room to the room dedicated to the noblewoman.
In this children bedroom can be seen a wrought iron crib. A mirror framed by a particular stucco work dominates the room.
