Villa Rova at Arquà Petrarca
Villa Rova: this fifteenth-century villa once belonged to the Pisani family and resembles the architectural style of Villa Pisani in Strà. It is a typical example of the Venetian villas which, from 1400, were beginning to be built by the noble families of Arquà, thanks to the fame brought by Petrarch. The Venetian villas were, in fact, predominantly built around his tomb. Like Villa Pisani, Villa Rova is a tall building, encompassing several floors.
