It is a sightseeing place which dates back
to the 16th century when the ground on the rests of an antique Roman
sanctuary was terraced and planted with olive trees and grapevine. And there
was built the manor house. Its present aspect is due to substantial
modifications made in the 19th and 20th century. Since
1985 the art collection Straka Coppa has its accommodation in the rooms
of the villa. The art collection consists of two departments: one deals with
modern, contemporary and futuristic art and exposes works by Ligabue, Dottori, Tamburi, Manzł, Turcato, Guttuso , the second
contains works by the classic figurative artists Titian, Carracci and Fattori.
For now ten years the Villa Fidelia is used as privileged place for
concerts and other events. In the marvellous frame of the park every year
appear Italian and international top musicians. In the last years the
singer-songwriters Paolo Conte, Francesco de Gregori, Elvis
Costello, Ivano Fossati, Vinicio Capossela and many more were
seen in exciting shows in the enchanting gardens of Villa Fidelia. So these
events have become important appointments in summer which should not be missed.
