Villa Ca’Toga, as Marchiori has named his estate (which is located on 5 acres), is a fanciful replica of a Palladian-style home, a style seen in Veneto, Italy. Over the years, Ca’Toga has grown and evolved as Marchiori has added marvelous new architectural elements and sculptures. Using ordinary and recycled building materials, he has created a captivating, fantastic fusion of Italian Renaissance art, mythological personalities, and contemplative gardens.
