The park, the plants and the flowers
At the end of the parterre facing the residence, there are hedges trimmed into solid shapes, which divide
the immediate garden from the meadow and the park.
This is lined by a path which branches off towards the natural ice hole, a fountain dedicated to Symonds,
the rock garden
(the Mockery) the fake ruins
(Temple of Baal and the Walls of Gerico), the theater of the
1800s, a small temple dedicated to Saint Anthony
, and the family chapel
This chapel is important as the sole neogothic Elizabethan work by sculptor Antonio Gradenigo, carried out
in 1860, following the designs of Pietro Selvatico of Este.
Gradenigo was the same sculptor who worked under Jappelli on the Cafe Pedrocchi in Padova.
It is a charming walk, where every plant is rich with emotion: superb and generous sovereigns, these
reduced to the mystery of nature, both still and living reigns over all doubts and instills tranquillity
through the shadows and light.
The Garden and the Park of the Villa Pisani are proof that the personality and the charm of Evelina Pisani
were so strong as to be felt even today.
