Villa Manin di Passariano

Villa Manin di Passariano

Residence of the last Doge of Venice, the imposing monumental architectural complex of Villa Manin is the heart of the small village of Passariano di Codroipo, in the province of Udine. Venetian Villa built in the sixteenth century at the behest of the Friulian noble Antonio Manin, the complex structure that we see today is the result of changes and additions made in the course of the eighteenth century which gave the baroque accents to the style inspired by Palladio. The changes were intended to give the Villa the representative function effectively carried out as the home of the signing of the international agreements, such as the Treaty of Campoformido, signed by Napoleon in person in 1797. Designed to be an integral part of the surrounding landscape, Villa Manin is characterized by the drawn embrace of two majestic barns that go to delimit the famous colonnaded portico in the shape of a horseshoe.

The interior is richly decorated with frescoes and it hosts regular contemporary art exhibitions, cultural events, conferences and international exhibitions. The massive size of the complex, described by Carlo Goldoni as a "stay fit for a king," is ideal for hosting international events, such as rock concerts by bands like Iron Maiden, REM and Radiohead.
