Q: So how many issues of JPG magazine were produced?

A: Do you know?

Originally from France, the family "Obizzi" arrives in Italy with the Emperor Henry II in 1007. After a first residence in Tuscany, the family settled permanently in the territory of the republic of Venice, then very powerful.

Attracted by the beauty of these places, Pio Enea degli Obizzi, decided to build a palatial residence for the glory of the family.

The "Catajo", halfway between military castle and princely villa, was built in just three years (1570-1573) and expanded in later periods. It has 350 rooms including the most representative of the main floor completely frescoed by Gian Battista Zelotti, a pupil of Paolo Veronese, with scenes that recount the exploits of the family.

From the large living room you can access the terrace from which you can enjoy a splendid view of the Euganean Hills and the vast gardens with fish pond, citrus and many redwood and magnolia trees that are first imported into Europe from America.
