Villa dal Verme e' considerata dagli studiosi la madre delle ville venete. Eretta verso la fine del '300 venne poi modificata nel suo aspetto castellare dall'inserimento nelle due facciate principali di due splendide trifore ad archi acuti trilobati secondo lo stile veneziano, a testimonianza della resa di vicenza nel 1404 alla serenissima repubblica. La villa fu costruita dalla ricca famiglia dei Dal Verme originaria di Verona e stabilitasi poi a Milano, Piacenza, Bobbio e Voghera. A pianta quadrata, rivolge il prospetto principale a sud, verso il canale Liona, sul quale affaccia un portico a due grandi archi a sesto ribassato di diversa ampiezza decentrati sulla sinistra. Al piano nobile si aprono simmetricamente una trifora in pietra tenera dei Berici ad archetti trilobati, affiancata da due monofore trilobate in cotto. Il fronte settentrionale è simmetrico e si apre verso la campagna, al piano terra, con un portale ad arco a tutto sesto in laterizi, mentre al piano nobile ripete lo stesso schema di aperture della facciata opposta con la trifora e le due monofore. È probabile che la primitiva villa sia sorta su resti di un edificio preesistente con funzione difensiva, trasformato poi in fondaco, base anche per scambi commerciali con Venezia, che avvenivano via acqua.

Nel Vecchio Mulino il passato e il presente si vogliono incontrare, trovando in Pietro e Ludovico la volontà e il piacere di raccontare e far rivivere in chiave moderna un'arte fondamentale per la vita dell’uomo. Il vecchio mulino conta due macine attualmente operative per cui possiamo parlare de – i mulini- destinati alla macinazione di cereali differenti. Le nostre pietre infatti, l’una naturale l’altra assemblaggio di quarzite, hanno superfici di lavoro differenti: l’una rigata (generalmente detta da grano) l’altra bocciardata (generalmente detta da mais o da “meliga”). Il mulino inteso come impianto nasce elettrico: un motore aziona la trasmissione e questa ingrana le macine, governate dall’abilità del mugnaio che con un volante distanzia le pietre determinando così la consistenza della farina. Produciamo farine di mais, di grano saraceno, di castagne, di frumento, di segale, di riso.

Tutankhamun's mask, or funerary mask of Tutankhamun, is the death mask of the 18th-dynasty ancient Egyptian Pharaoh Tutankhamun. It was discovered by Howard Carter in 1925 in tomb KV62 and is now housed in the Egyptian Museum in Cairo. The mask is one of the best-known works of art in the world. Bearing the likeness of Osiris, Egyptian god of the afterlife, it is 54 centimetres (1.8 ft) tall, weighs over 10 kilograms (22 lb) or 321.5 Troy Ounces, and is decorated with semi-precious stones. An ancient spell from the Book of the Dead is inscribed in hieroglyphs on the mask's shoulders. The mask had to be restored in 2015 after its 2.5-kilogram (5.5 lb) plaited beard fell off and was hastily glued back on by museum workers. According to Egyptologist Nicholas Reeves, the mask is "not only the quintessential image from Tutankhamun's tomb, it is perhaps the best-known object from ancient Egypt itself
