Villa Emo Cortuso Maldura at Rivella

Via Rivella, 4 - Monselice

Villa Emo Capodilista, known today as Villa Maldura, is one of the most important dwellings attributed to Vincenzo Scamozzi. It was built in the late 16th century along the Bisatto canal, outside the town of Monselice in the direction of Padua. It was designed in a beautiful Palladian style, especially recognisable in the colonnade at the front and in the garden’s geometrical plan.

The garden combines typical features of the Venetian Renaissance - such as the grove of hop-hornbeams, the fruit orchard, and the fish pond - with an extraordinary number and variety of roses and other flowers. The current, lovely aspect of the Villa’s Italian garden is due to Countess Giuseppina Emo, who decided to add traditional elements of the Venetian Renaissance garden, such as the hop-hornbeams, the fruit orchard and the roses.
