The Villa is located on the ruins of an ancient castle builded by the Dentes around the year 1000. Bought by the Carraresis, lords of Padua, was inherited by a member of the Contarini family. Since the second half of the XVII Century the Villa stayied a rural dwelling: in fact, it was Marco Contarini, prosecutor of St Mark, that extended the building giving it a mansion resemblance and making it an extraordinary “theatrical place”. After a long period of abandonment it was bought by the Camerinis that gave back to the Villa the ancient beauty, following the XIX Century style. After this period, the Villa saw again many years of abandonment, since when, at the middle of the last century, it was bought by Professor Ghirardi and later left to his Foundation. From 2005 the Villa is property of Regione Veneto, that is currently occupied in its promotion. Periodically, the Villa hosts concerts and cultural events, and it is also the ideal place to host conventions, meetings and receptions. The Villa i salso the headquarter of Foundation Giordano Emilio Ghirardi ONLUS, that promotes cultural events and initiatives.
