• Treviso - Walls and Waterways

    Treviso, Province of Treviso, Italy .

    Treviso, the ancient Roman Tarvisium, was surrounded by walls even at the time of its foundation, and the walls have always protected the city. Today some points of the walls can be visited and until a recent past you could only enter the city through the three gates: Porta San Tommaso, Porta Santi Quaranta and Porta Altinia. The Winged Lion of Venice can still be admired near the Gates, testifying that Treviso was the most important outpost of the Republic of Venice on the mainland. The walls and the history of Treviso are linked by a double thread to that of its watercourses, which surround the walls and can be admired on foot or by bicycle: you will find villas overlooking the river with their ancient suspended wash houses, gardens, well-kept parks and absolute quiet. Along the way we recommend a stop on Dante's bridge, "where Sile and Cagnan accompany each other", as the Poet says in his song in his Paradise. Since 1865 a stele recalls Dante Alighieri, but this bridge is also known as the "bridge of the impossible", because even after its reconstruction in stone the people of Treviso feared that it would collapse like the other wooden bridges overwhelmed by the floods of the two rivers.

  • Ciclovia Treviso Ostiglia

    Treviso - Ostiglia Ciclabile, Santa Cristina, Province of Treviso, Italy .

     The Treviso-Ostiglia route was a state-owned Italian railway line connecting Ostiglia to Treviso. It was built by the Italian army for strategic purposes to defend the north-eastern borders. The idea was soon abandoned, however, as the Padova-Bologna line was considered sufficient. Later some parliamentarians, led by Leone Wollemborg, took steps to reopen the project and build the railway line. It was considered an important operation for commercial purposes; the beneficiaries were the large and rich agricultural towns in the centre of Veneto. The First World War interrupted the work in progress and was resumed only in 1920. Ten years later, a few months before the beginning of the Second World War, the new railway line was inaugurated and few trains attended it. Fundamental nodes, besides the two terminal stations of the route, were Camposampiero, Legnago, Grisignano di Zocco. To remember that the route was used for the deportation of Jews to concentration camps in Nazi Germany. Representing a strategic artifact, it was bombed several times by the Allied Air Force.

    Today the former railway line, thanks to a project of the Province of Padua and Treviso, has been transformed into a very popular cycle-pedestrian path.

    The old railway stations and toll booths are still visible, even if they were badly damaged, but they are still fully recognizable and on some occasions they have been recovered and restructured to accommodate commercial activities.

  • La Rotonda di Badoere

    Badoere, Province of Treviso, Italy .

    The barchessa of Villa Badoer called "La Rotonda" is one of the most important architectural examples of the period of the Venetian villas. It is located in Badoere di Morgano, in the province of Treviso.

    It is a long portico that is divided into two hemicycles interrupted by the passage of a public road. Inside there is a large circular space (Piazza Indipendenza) that constitutes the heart of the town.

    The west building is the "noble" part of the complex; originally the project was attributed to Giorgio Massari, but more recent studies suggest an architect from Riccati, perhaps Francesco Maria Preti. The other has instead more spartan lines, while harmoniously completing the complex. These differences are at the basis of the different uses: the western barchessa housed commercial businesses, while the eastern barchessa was the lodgings of the labourers.

    The complex ends with the small church of Sant'Antonio (1645).
