In the nineties, Villa Barbaran underwent an initial restoration. The structural and architectural interventions concerned the south block and were suspended a few years later by the Superintendency for Architectural Heritage and Landscape.
In 1998 the project was authorized in amnesty, but the interventions were never resumed.
Today the Grassi family, owner of the site, wants to invest resources and energy in the project. An ambitious project, which in a first phase consists in the static restoration of the villa. The short-term goal is therefore to make up for the serious maintenance deficiencies of the building.
Arch. Barbara Zattra performed an accurate analysis of the building and, in this first phase, we plan to intervene in six areas: frescos, systems, roofing and masonry, floors, exterior and foundations.
At a later stage, the most substantial renovation will be carried out, which will restore luster to the villa and includes the construction of a space for events and four residential units.
