Eighteenth-century Venetian villa located at the confluence of via Verdi and via Circonvallazione. Luigi Brunello - historian of Mestre, was co-founder and president of the Centro Studi Storici of Mestre -, according to some researches, he believes that the monumental complex can date back to 1696 and that at the time there was also an additional building which has now disappeared due to of a fire. Certainly, in the eighteenth century and for a good part of the following century, the property belonged to the Querini family, Stampalia branch of Santa Maria Formosa, as evidenced by the Napoleonic cadastre and by a Marcian manuscript written by Francesco Fapanni who attributed the residence to Count Giorgio Querini Stampalia.
