Since the end of the XIX century Villa Wenner was the Wenners’ home, who

founded textile industry in the Irno valley.

that is still named “Villini Svizzeri” (Swiss Villas). In the same area more

buildings were built for people who worked in that industry. For the project of the

Swiss architecture the architect Stefano Gasse, already famous in Naples for the

facade of St. Giacomo Palace (the town hall) and the grove of the Royal Villa, was


He also ran the planning of the surrounding park, which is in neoclassical style.

In 1984 Villa Wenner got the bond from the “Ministero per i Beni Culturali ed

Ambientali” (Culture Heritage and Environment).

The fireplaces are very particular and precious characterised by cast iron decoration

made by foundries next to the textile industries. In fact the cast iron decoration

appear in several part of the villa: the front gate, the windows, the railings, the bridge

on the back entrance and the front porch.

The Wenners were owners of the palace until 1976. Since then most of the property

belongs to the Scarpa family.

The first floor is used for tourist visit and banquets.
