Villa Albuzio is a Venetian villa located in the Treviso area dating back to the last years of the 16th century and presents itself from the outside, rich of trees that hide its sight; the building is preceded by a vast lawn surrounded on three sides by rows of ash and lemon trees. The frontage of the main building, articulated in a simple three-storey parallelepiped structure, is painted with horizontal bands on which intricate red plant arabesques stand out: on the right, a short two-storey wing also frescoed with lively horizontal bands, shows on the frontage the family coat of arms; follows the barchessa, pleasantly punctuated by five airy and wide arches, beyond which there is a suggestive hill used as a glacier and another building used during the winter as a limonaia and woodshed. Behind the villa, a prospective telescope meadow bordered on the sides by hedges extends in the distance. In the main body of the villa there are two central halls arranged one on the ground floor and one on the first floor. Other smaller rooms are also located on the ground floor and on the first floor. Stucchi of the 1700 and 1800 embellish the halls and the rooms. Outside the villa is surrounded by a park of 22000 square meters with lush trees on the front and a lawn bordered by hedges and pine trees on the back.
