Villa Lombardi Cordellina in Montecchio Maggiore is a fine example of eighteenth-century villa, built between 1735 and 1760 by the architect Giorgio Massari for Charles Cordellina Molin, the famous Venetian lawyer who wanted to erect in the Veneto countryside to its new home.  In 1743, Giambattista Tiepolo was present in the work of helping to decorate the main hall of the villa with a cycle of frescoes inspired by the splendor of Scipio Africanus and Alexander the Great. The villa was owned by Louis Cordellina, son of Charles, until the first decades of the nineteenth century, when it was joined to the boarding school Cordellina Louis, which gave the students stay and later converted into an establishment for the breeding of silkworms . From the mid-nineteenth century until the years of the world wars, the villa and outbuildings suffered a sharp decline and abandonment, and only in the fifties, a time when the whole became the property of Dr. Victor Lombardi, a businessman from Milan of great sensitivity and courage, began the restoration and reconstruction of the villa gardens.
