Frescoes in the family villa at Zianigo (1759-97)
by Giovanni Domenico TIEPOLO

Giovanni Domenico Tiepolo decorated with frescoes the family villa at Zianigo which his father, Giovanni Battista Tiepolo had bought on his return from the task of decorating the Prince-Bishop's palace in Würzburg and which he had restored and altered to his own needs. The frescoes were painted over a fairly long period of time: between 1759 - the date shown on one of the monochrome scenes from the chapel - and 1797 - according to a now lost inscription read at the beginning of the twentieth century in a mural scene in the Pulcinella Room. Almost all the frescoes in the small Zianigo villa were detached in 1906 and in 1936 they were moved to the Ca' Rezzonico and placed in small rooms, in a recomposition that closely repeats the original one, though with some differences and overlapping.
