Villa Vecelli, Cavriani, Ruffini is a Venetian villa that dates back to the first half of the XVIII century. It is situated in Mozzecane, a town in the province of Verona. The Veronese architect Adriano Cristofali was responsible for its building project. The Villa is located a little more than a kilometer from the Via Postumia, and it is close to Strada Mantovana, the only road that used to connect the North of Europe with the South of Italy.

The Vecelli family was responsible for the seventeenthcentury building of the villa. Adopted by Verona, they might have originally come from the province of Vicenza or Treviso. The Marquees of Cavriani were instead one of the most prominent noble families in Mantua. The Villa is concived as a traditional venetian one: the main building, the two sides minor buildings and the double Brolo are representative elements of that time. The sides buildings host a restaurant (suitable for weddings and events), and the “Residenza di Vecelli Cavriani” which provides 8 bedrooms furnished in the Ville style.

In the second half of the seventeenth century, the Vecelli’s family took over the Villa which belonged to the Montresor family, and entrusted the restoration project to the Venetian neoclassicism exponent Adriano Cristofali. From the start, the family wanted to create a building as magnificent as the other villas of the time. In the 1811 Villa Vecelli became the property of the Cavriani family from Mantova. They brought the villa to its highest notoriety and, among others, it hosted the King of Naples. During the Austrian domination, the building was first used as barracks and later as a hospital. For decades, the Villa had been completely abandoned. It is only thanks to the important restauration work wanted by the new owner that it is now back to its original beauty.
