Large rustic farmhouse in via Beolo
These large rustic farmhouses (“casoni” in Italian) were widespread around the Venetian countryside, as they were easy to build and made with the materials offered by the surroundings, making them popular among the poor people who worked in the fields. At first, these were just simple huts that could only be used during harvest season, but then they evolved into sturdier, square structures, with many elements made of bricks. They disappeared from the countrysides in just 30 years, between the Fascist period and the post-war period, when people started seeing them as unhealthy places to live in; with the arrival of modern technology, they were seen as symbols of poverty to get rid of. The one in Via Beolo is the only one left in the town of Conselve and dates back to the end of the 19th century. Address: via Beolo, Conselve (PD) Private
