    Villa Foscarini Negrelli was built in the 17th century in Palladian taste, with alterations in the neo-classical period. It has beautiful pronaos with Ionic columns topped by a triangular tympanum with statues, and the four tall pinnacles lining the facade.
    It is the first villa which can be seen on the Riviera Brenta tour, starting from Padova.
