Villa Cornaro was built in Piombino Dese for the powerful Venetian patrician, Giorgio Cornaro, who marks a clear improvement in prestige and spending power of Andrea Palladio’s patrons. Villa Cornaro has a structure and pattern very similar to a building and it’s more a country house than a villa. Since 1989 Villa Cornaro has been the spring and autumn residence of Mr. and Mrs. Carl I. Gable of Atlanta, Georgia, USA, the sixth family to occupy the villa in its 445-year history.
