Since 2000 Villa Marignana Benetton has been the seat of the museum dedicated to the artist Toni Benetton, the renowned twentieth century sculptor. He bought the Villa because he wanted a place where his works, being on permanent exhibition, could be seen and enjoyed by everybody.
Toni Benetton is considered one of the greatest contemporary sculptors, famous for his work in the field of Monumental Sculptures.
He was born in Treviso and at a very early age he started to attend the shop of his uncle who worked as a blacksmith and he was fascinated by the way in which iron was worked. This experience would seal his lifelong, special tie with iron.
