Villa Badoer, also called La Badoera, built in Fratta Polesine between 1555 and 1557 is one of the most prestigious Venetian Villas. The project and the realization were committed to Francesco Badoer, heir of a noble Venetian family, and Andrea Palladio, one of the major italian architects of the XVI century (Andrea di Pietro della Gondola, called Andrea Palladio, Paduaa 1508- Maser - Treviso 1580). The Badoera is made up by a central body, residence of the noble owners, connected with the two colonnades, that close in a half circle the garden in front of it. The façade, completed by an elegant fronton, is embellished by a monumental pronao accessible from wide stairs. The inside is prestigious, divided in a central hall and the adjacent openings, embellished with frescos realised by Pierfrancesco Giallo Fiorentino at the end of the XVI century. The frescos reprenest mythological (some of them strictly connected to the territory) and grotesque scenes. During the XVIII century the two colonnades were extended in order to form a semi cycle, the inside wad renovated and the family crest was put in the fronton. In 1996 it was declared UNESCO Human Heritage site.
