Villa

The villa’s full name, as registered with the Regional Venetian Villas Institute, is GIUSTINIAN, QUERINI STAMPALIA, CARRETTA now MOLON.

Villa Molon was built in 1652 for the Giustinian family. In March 1792, ownership passed to the Querinis, and then to the Morisini-Gatterburgs. “ THE RESIDENCE AT CAMPO DI PIETRA”: this is how the property belonging to the Querinis was referred to. It continued to grow and prosper, thanks to the silkworm farm there and a series of redevelopment works. The residence remained in the Querini family until 1869.

In 1892, it was purchased by the Guido Carretta family of Santa Maria di Campagna, who created an agricultural business, to add to the silkworm farm, spanning a thousand or so hectares and encompassing fields of vines, wheat and grain. In 1969, the villa was registered with the Regional Venetian Villas Institute, thereby guaranteeing structural protection which it still guards today.

In 1994 the Molon-Traverso family bought the villa and, with much courage, dedication and passion, began a long restructuration period, restoring the villa to its former glory under the Republic of Venice. The renovated villa was inaugurated in August 1996.

Today the site is home to the aging cellars (as was the case in the past), an intimate restaurant, a wine shop which also offers excellent gastronomic products, a museum of farming life, administrative offices and a series of spaces for hosting events of all kinds.

In 2015, Villa Molon won “Best Venetian Villa 2015”, awarded by the Regional Venetian Villas Institute at Palazzo Ducale in Venice, for the significant renovation and conservation works that had been done to enhance Villa Molon.
