Noventa di Piave,
Villa Cą Zorzi

In the parish church we find the remarkable 16th century icone, known as the"black Madonna", a cedar wooden slab on which the bust of the Virgin with Jesus in her arms is painted, embossed in silver foil that leaves only the faces and the hands uncovered. The cross, dated between the 12th and the 13th centuries, is considered to be a masterpiece of the goldsmith’s art.
The 19th century villa Ca’ Zorzi can be visited. Residence of the famous poet Giacomazzo Zorzi, it hosts many cultural events. By appointment it's interesting to visit the naturalistic centre of didactics "il Pendolino", aimed at developing knowledge about the natural environment, the ecology of this agrarian territory, and the fluvial lower plain river environment.
