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.
