Villa Arvedi in Cuzzano, Grezzana, was registered as the property of Mastino, Alberto and Cangrande della Scala since 1200. In 1432 it was
described as: ”a holding with a battlemented house, and wine and oil presses”. It is situated on the slope of a hill and surrounded above
by an ancient olive grove and a wood full of oaks and hornbeams. Towards the middle of 1650 it took on its current form based on the
architect’s G.B. Bianchi designs. The room on the first floor and the small church are covered in frescos painted by Ludovico Dorigny
(1654-1742). There are also frescos created by Farinati, Fralezza and Santo Prunati. In the centre of the rear courtyard there is a small
baroque church dedicated to San Carlo Borromeo (he stayed here during his journey to Trento for the 1485 Council).
The majestic seventeenth-century Villa Allegri was bought by Giovanni Antonio Arvedi in 1824 and is still property of the Arvedi family.
Villa Arvedi is 9 kilometres from Verona and a few kilometres from the Serenissima and Modena-Brennero motorway exits.
It is also near to the Villafranca – Verona Catullo Airport and Lake Garda, and is in the heart of the Valpantena greenery, at the foot of the Lessini mountains.
It is a prestigious location for weddings, conventions, seminars, press conferences, fashion shows, product launches, films, adverts, working lunches, gala evenings and small and large meetings.
This splendid room has frescos painted by Ludovico Dorigny (1654-1742) where “the pictorial fantasy of Dorigny has left us one of his most representative and important works of art” (Viviani 1975). The frescos depict mythological scenes including Perseo and the Medusa, the battle between the Centaurs and the Lapiths and the Titans carrying the signs of the zodiac.
The vivid frescoed figures are placed within an extremely complex setting. The breathtaking trompe l’oeil perspective effects are attributed to Francesco Bibiena (1659-1739). The room is 20m long, 9m wide and about 12m high with floor heating. It is the ideal place for gala evenings, conventions or award ceremonies.
The room is pleasantly bright; with a surface area of 185m2, it is19.5m long, 9.5m wide and 5.6m high. On one side it opens out onto an Italian style garden and on the other one side onto an internal courtyard with a baroque church.
The room can host up to 200 people for sit down meals and up to 300 for stand up receptions.
These characteristics make it the ideal place for elegant events and national and international conventions.
Villa Arvedi is also known for its Italian style garden.
It is an elegant and sober accessory to the Villa and is characterised by its refined double fan drawings, unique in Italy.
It is bordered by a low wall and extends onto a terrace that looks out onto the front of the villa.
It is open on the east side where there is the access road and open countryside, whilst on the north side a high wall protects it from the cold winds. Century-old boxwood bushes line the path, complete with its central fountain.
Behind the villa, a little higher than the villa itself, there is the baroque chapel dedicated to San Carlo Borromeo with its
characteristic bell tower visible from afar.
Inside the chapel, the oratory is fully covered in Dorigny’s frescos.
It was built in 1717, and was most likely a substitute for a previous chapel.
It is from here that a complex design unfolds, consisting of antique low boxwood bushes, which create an extraordinary feeling of space and are in harmony with the building’s facade.
The magnificent road that leads from the estate’s entrance to the villa is lined with boxwood trees that have been pruned into geometric perspective shapes.
The villa has been chosen by both important national and international companies for their events.
