Departure: Vicenza, Palazzo Valmarana Braga
Every place in the city has seen the works of genius come to life. Through the streets of the center, the stones have memories of the steps of a young stonemason who came from Padua to build the new face of Vicenza and its successful campaign. Genius and luck. Intuition and resources. A meeting. Just outside the city, between the stones and the dust of the yard of the Villa, Giangiorgio Trissino coins the most famous name of modern architecture: Palladio, like an angel with golden wings come to shape the forms of the countryside and the new culture.
