Framing Palladio: Villa La Rotonda

Framing Palladio: Villa La Rotonda | Italia Mia |

Of all the iconic buildings, churches, residences and monuments across the Veneto region of northeastern Italy that bear the imprint of Renaissance master builder Andrea Palladio, there is but one that fully encapsulates his vision of an architectural design and associated lifestyle: Villa Almerico Capra, better known as La Rotonda (The Rotunda).

Considered Palladio’s capolavoro (masterpiece), La Rotonda, a UNESCO World Heritage site, stands proudly atop Collina San Sebastiano, a small, terraced hill on the outskirts of Vicenza along the Riviera Berica. [...]

Cycling from Venice to Ferrara

Cycling from Venice to Ferrara | Italia Mia |

Venice, one of the most romantic city in the world is just few km away from Emilia Romagna region.

Reaching Ferrara in the Po river delta from Venice is not that difficult, and suitable for almost everyone as the level route is mainly along minor roads.[...]

Villa Saraceno seen by "the Palladian Traveller"

Villa Saraceno seen by "the Palladian Traveller" | Italia Mia |

Villa Saraceno [is located] in Finale di Agugliaro, a small country village midway between Vicenza and Padova in the Bassa Vicentina.
Built by Andrea Palladio, the father of western architecture, around 1545 as the centerpiece for an existing farm owned by Biagio Saraceno, the villa caught fire in 1798 and was severely damaged, partitioned off and used as a community farm house in the late 1800s, converted to tenement dwellings during World War II, and by the 1980s Villa Saraceno was totally abandoned, derelict and, sadly, forgotten.
With barely a pulse left in its facade, the Villa Saraceno was plucked off the building emporium scrap heap by The Landmark Trust, a British charity charged with rescuing significant historic buildings at risk.
Purchased in 1989, The Landmark Trust breathed new life into Villa Saraceno with a tedious five-year renovation project that culminated with the reopening of its doors and windows in 1994. [...]

Treviso: “Little Venice” Without the Crowds

Treviso: “Little Venice” Without the Crowds | Italia Mia |

Treviso the  “Little Venice":
Piazza del Duomo.
Via Calmaggiore
Piazza dei Signori, main road in Roman times.
Palazzo dei Trecento
Buranelli Canal.
Treviso isn’t too touristy, we thought with hindsight. It’s a gem we can keep to ourselves. Che bella città!

Venice-etc's curator insight, May 25, 2013 10:29 AM

Treviso is a unique combination of landscapes, art, history, natural beauty, and good food, able to to remain in the heart of who walks through these sceneries, located a few kilometers from Venice. ...
