Villa Pisani, also called the National, is one of the most famous examples of Venetian villa on the Riviera del Brenta, located in Stra, near Venice, overlooking the Brenta Canal. It is now a national museum, which houses works of art and furniture of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.
At the time of building the villa had 114 rooms (now 168), in tribute to 114 ° Venetian doge Alvise Pisani. Its monumentality has meant that the villa was often chosen as a residence or as a venue for meetings between monarchs and heads of state or government; Villa Pisani has hosted, among others, Napoleon Bonaparte in 1807 who bought it from the Pisani Family to the viceroy of Italy Eugene de Beauharnais.

     In 1814 the villa became the property of the Habsburgs, and becoming a resort hosting the European aristocracy, by Charles IV of Spain, Zar Alexander I to Ferdinand II of Bourbon, King of Naples. In 1866, the year of the annexation of Venice to the kingdom of Italy, Villa Pisani became state property, losing the function of representation and becoming, in 1884, museum. In 1934 he hosted the first official meeting between Mussolini and Hitler.
