Mecenati Villa is also another very important centre for music in the town. Built in the thirties as a rural dwelling belonging to a large agricultural estate, the building was later transformed into an Empire-style villa by the architect G.B. Scarpari who was commissioned by the owner, Maestro Ferrante Mecenati. Surrounded by a big garden, its white façade is decorated with elegant pilasters which mark the distribution of the windows.
Since 1972, when the building was donated to the people of Adria along with its prestigious furniture and library by the Mecenati family, this splendid villa has housed the A. Buzzolla Music Academy.
Inside there is a small hall dedicated to the soprano Rosetta Pampanini with rich furnishings and souvenirs of her triumphal tours in Italy and abroad.
