Villa Molin

Villa Molin

Villa Molin, in Padua owes its name to the ambassador of the Venetian Republic Nicolò Molin, who in 1597 commissioned the famous architect Vincenzo Scamozzi to design his splendid country villa on the outskirts of the city of Padua. 

Vincenzo Scamozzi, the great Vicenza architect whom Wittkover called "the intellectual father of neoclassicism" was the author of the Procuratie Nuove in Piazza San Marco, the wooden scenes of the Teatro Olimpico in Vicenza and the first public museum in Europe, the Statuario della Repubblica to Venice.

The genius of Vincenzo Scamozzi has shaped a villa of great formal rigor and geometric coherence. Its clear volumes stand out against the background of the Euganean hills and are reflected on Canale Battaglia with monumental elegance. The spectacular interior is a treasure trove of works of art, where Renaissance, Baroque and Neoclassicism coexist harmoniously. Villa Molin is surrounded by an Italian garden and a centuries-old park.

The villa can be visited with an innovative method of VideoGuide ART EXPERIENCE which allows a personal and safe visit with the possibility of staying in the villa and in the park all afternoon to be able to enjoy in safety and freedom the beauty and harmony that the historic houses and enchanted gardens can offer.

We invite you to discover it virtually with one of the VideoGuides designed by Newtone architects - Marco Michele Rossi, accessible from home or on site via QR code, which will also introduce you to some rooms closed to the public. 

The villa is now used for events, as a cinematographic set and for visits
