Fratta Polesine

This beautiful place is known for the splendid Villa Badoer, UNESCO heritage site, and it is home of the National Archaeological Museum. With the Villa Badoer, Palladio left one of his most successful works in terms of taste and harmony of forms.
Along the two rivers that run through the village one can see numerous villas and palaces of rare beauty among which stand out Villa Grimani Molin, designed by a pupil of Palladio.
Fratta was also the birthplace of Giacomo Matteotti, and in his family home there is now a museum.
