Abstract

The Villa dei Vescovi at Luvigliano di Torreglia, in the province of Padua, was built in the late 15th century but then substantially altered in the early 16th century, in all probability by Gian Maria Falconetto, Giulio Romano, Andrea della Valle and Vincenzo Scamozzi. The initial survey flagged up aggressive deterioration of the external decoration caused by the natural ageing of the materials, structural subsidence in line with the entrance wall, the porch of the central courtyard, the staircases and the southern wall, along with insufficient services to allow for the intended new utilisation of the building. A "soft", controlled plan was drafted with the aim of conserving the material and designing and inserting compatible functions with a view to revitalising the building and allowing a large user base to appreciate it, enhancing its use value while conserving its particular features, as well as the signs of time and history
