The Villa Giovannelli Colonna is a rural palace located in Noventa Padovana, in the region of the Veneto near Padua, northern Italy.

The villa was commissioned in the late 17th century by the aristocrat Federico Maria Giovanelli to the architect Antonio Gaspari. The architect of the dramatic entrance stairway (1738) was Giorgio Massari. The statues represent an allegory representing the five senses, and were executed by Antonio Tarsia, Antonio Gai and by the brothers Groppelli. The interior is frescoed by Sebastiano Ricci and Giuseppe Angeli. The gardens consist of labyrinths and designs.
