Villa Lattes, Istrana, Province of Treviso

Autumn is the season of the year (for me) where the colors of the leaves, the taste of chestnuts and new wine “vin novo” and pumpkins have the power to ease the gloomy feeling that I feel during the cold and rainy days that marks the end of summer.

“Festa della Zucca” which means pumpkin festival outside Villa Lattes in the town of Istrana in the Province of Treviso.

Villa Lattes, Istrana

Another jewel in the Province of Treviso.

Inside the Villa is a collection of musical boxes and automatons which the former owner of the Villa, a Lawyer, Bruno Lattes, has left to the city of Treviso but now owned by the municipality of Istrana in the province of Treviso, Italy.

“Il Tamburino” the drummer

” La scimmia con il banjo” The monkey with the Banjo

“Il pagliaccio che suona l’Arpa”

Can you believe that this is a Music box chair?

Above are only some of the interesting things that you can see by visiting the villa and it’s museum.

Thank you to great men like Bruno Lattes, I can again say…life is indeed a very interesting journey.

Wishing everyone a fantastic weekend!
