Villa Ca' Diedo: history
The splendid Villa Ca' Diedo stands in Cusinati-Rosà, in the gentle countryside of Vicenza. It is a majestic residence dating back to the 18th century, built on an earlier building from the 16th century. The structure, also known as Villa Favaretti, originally belonged to the Venetian Diedo family.
Around 1820 the complex was bought by the botanist Alberto Parolini, great-uncle of the present owners. Over the next few decades, Parolini began restoring the Villa and designing the park that surrounds it today. John Ball, a famous Irish politician and naturalist, planted redwood trees in the park. A small chapel was also annexed to the Villa, the only religious centre for the local population until the 20th century.
During the Second World War, Villa Ca' Diedo was attacked by German troops passing through during their retreat. The soldiers fired into the building, thinking the Americans occupied it. Fortunately, no one was hit and the family's life continued to run smoothly.
Villa Ca' Diedo was thus handed down from generation to generation to the present day. In the 1980s the owners decided to dedicate the former stables to the organization of events and weddings. The Villa has thus become a worldly and locally famous venue, while remaining a private residence.
