Il Castello

Valbona di Lozzo (Padua)


IL CASTELLO [the Castle] at Valbona is an ancient structure that passed to the Carrara family, 1318, and then to Venice, 1405. By 1635 the property was owned by Marco Cornaro (E-44 [prob.]) of the segment of the Cornaro family known as the Candia [Crete] branch. Il Castello passed through Marco's descendants and then into the possession, c. 1800, of Andriana (Diedo) Cornaro, the wife (or perhaps, by then, the widow) of Andrea Cornaro (E-76), one of the last Cornaros of the Candia branch.
