Villa Santa Sofia

It is located in Pedemonte and it was built in different stages between 16th and 18th century, without being completed. In addition to Michele Sanmicheli, also Andrea Palladio took part in the project.

Initially, it was inhabited by Earls Serego Alighieri, who had a villa also in Gargagnago; then it has been bought by Earls Campostrini, who gave it the name Santa Sofia, using the name of the chapel outside the walls.

The horseshoe building has two floors and it is supported by imposing yellow-tuff columns. The park was reduced in size during the last century in order to leave space to the village for urban expansion.
