    The Countess Pisani was born in Constantinople in 1830 but was educated in Rome, she is English and her name is Evelina van Milligen. She married the last of the Pisani family who owned the Villa del Doge in Vescovana in the Padovan area.

    In the summer of 1888, she stayed for a long time at the Villa Pisani in Vescovana, which we will visit, to take care of her husband’s property, immersed in the boundless countryside of Gromboolia, the Bassa Padovana.

    Following this, we will move on to the Euganean Hills, home to the Literary Park “Francesco Petrarca Literary Park® and the Euganean Hills”, where we will see Arquà Petrarca and Monte Venda, which she visited.
