The "barchessa" is a building typical of the architecture of the Venetian villa, which was used for storing agricultural equipment and food supplies. In the area of the Republic of Venice the buildings "barchesse", with their large arches, were almost always positioned on the side of the villa (manor house) and, usually, an integral part of a large complex of architectural Palladian style.
The Barchessa Rambaldi, located in the historic center of Bardolino, a constitutive part of the ancient palace of the Marquis Rambaldi (XV century). The building was transformed in "barchessa" in 1700 for the needs of agricultural management, and after a period of neglect in the recent past, has been returned to its former glory and restored as an exhibition space.
