Places to see in ( Vicenza - Italy ) Corso Palladio
Places to see in ( Vicenza - Italy ) Corso Palladio
Corso Andrea Palladio is the main street in Vicenza , named after the second world war by the famous architect. About 700 meters long, it crosses the historical core of the city from west to east, respectively from Porta Castello to piazza Giacomo Matteotti. The course of the current course corresponds substantially to what, in Roman times, was the decumanus maximus of the city and, at the same time, the urban stretch of the consular Via Postumia . Also called strata major , after the construction of the early medieval city walls it was bordered to the west by the Porta Feliciana (very close, although not all coinciding with the Porta del Castello) and to the east by the Porta San Pietro (on the right bank of the Bacchiglione river, height of the bridge of St. Peter, time of the Angels).
During the Middle Ages and in modern times it retained its function as a link between the cities of the Veneto plain (respectively Verona and Padua), so that at its edges were opened inns, taverns and places for rental cars; Generally it was called Strata major , Strà grande , or simply Strà. It was also important public place. Already during the Middle Ages there were four points in which the public crier had to go to proclaim the decrees of the city government and the sentences of condemnation issued against the guilty: the door Sancti Petri , the plathea Sancte Corone , the domus illorum de Caldogno ( at the beginning of the current contrà Porti) and the canton of the red well (the intersection with the current Corso Fogazzaro)
The Course starts from the Porta Castello and from the Torrione (at No. 1) - the only remaining structures - of the mighty Castle built in 1343 by Antonio and Mastino II della Scala , who restored the Ezzelian fortress destroyed 50 years earlier, extending it into a a real castle, which occupied a square area, surrounded by deep pits, surrounded by towers at the four corners and the tower at the center. The current appearance of the Tower, with the projecting battlements with embrasures above corbels and with the addition of the lantern summit, almost certainly belongs to the Visconti period at the end of the fourteenth century
Next is Palazzo Marchi . A part of the castle, demolished in the nineteenth century, was replaced by this palace, whose high fence wall borders the course. The entrance, at the center of the wall, is given by an arched portal with a round arch, with a female head in an arch and crowned by a triangular tympanum with two reclining female figures holding a cartouche in the pediment
On the opposite corner of the square, at no. 13, there is the Palazzo Thiene Bonin Longare , the Vicenza headquarters of Confindustria , which has promoted its restoration. The palace, which Francesco Thiene had built on the family property, was designed by Andrea Palladio presumably in 1572 and built by Vincenzo Scamozzi after the death of the master; it was bought in 1835 by Lelio Bonin Longare. Since 1994 he has entered, along with other Palladian architecture in Vicenza, in the list of world heritage of ' UNESCO.The similarity with other Palladian projects - for example with Palazzo Barbaran da Porto - makes one think of the seventies of the sixteenth century, both in the design of the lower part of the facade and in the large double- order loggia overlooking the inner courtyard .
The side instead - with the ground floor covered with mild ashlar, the tall French windows on the first floor crowned with alternately triangular and curved tympanum, the little protruding balustrade balconies - is the work of Scamozzi, considering the resemblance with Palazzo Trissino al Duomo . Even the deep atrium, substantially indifferent to the order grid, could be scrapped.

Thiene Bonin Longare Palace, Vicenza, Veneto, Italy, Europe
Thiene Bonin Longare Palace is a patrician palace in Vicenza, northern Italy, designed by Andrea Palladio probably in 1572 and built after Palladio's death by Vincenzo Scamozzi. It is one of the city palazzi of the Thiene family that Palladio worked upon, the other being Palazzo Thiene in the near contrà Porti. Since 1994 the palace has formed part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site the current name of which is City of Vicenza and the Palladian Villas of the Veneto. There are more doubts than certainties surrounding the history of the urban villa that Francesco Thiene built on family properties at the eastern extremity of the Strada Maggiore, today the Corso Palladio, beginning with the exact date of its construction. At Palladio’s death the building had still not been executed: on the Pianta Angelica of 1580, in fact, there still appear only old houses and a garden. A document of 1586 records that construction had still not begun, but certainly in 1593, on the death of the patron Francesco Thiene, the palace was at least a third built. Enea Thiene, who inherited the estate of his uncle Francesco, carried works to their conclusion, probably within the first decade of the 17th century. In 1835 the palace was acquired by Lelio Bonin Longare. In his treatise L'idea della architettura universale (published in Venice in 1615), Vincenzo Scamozzi writes that he was responsible for completing the building’s construction on the basis of a project by another architect with certain revisions to the original design. The architect that Scamozzi does not name is certainly Andrea Palladio, because two autograph sheets survive which can be referred to Francesco Thiene’s palace: on these are traced two plan variants, substantially close to the present building, as well as a sketch for the façade which is very different from that executed. It is unclear when Palladio formulated his own ideas for the palazzo, but it is credible that he did so in 1572, the year in which Francesco Thiene and his uncle Orazio divided up the family properties and the former obtained the very site where Palladio’s edifice would rise. If one analyses the realised building, various elements stand out which favour a dating to the 1570s: for example, the many points of contact with the Palazzo Barbaran da Porto, both in the design of the lower part and in the great, double-storey loggia of the courtyard. Instead, the side could be the work of Vincenzo Scamozzi, given its affinities with the Palazzo Trissino by the Duomo. The deep atrium, which is substantially indifferent to the grid of architectural orders, could also be by Scamozzi and while the rooms on its right, as one enters, clearly reuse rather irregular, pre-existing walls, those on the left are perfectly regular and evidently rise from new foundations.

Places to see in ( Trani - Italy ) Porto
Places to see in ( Trani - Italy ) Porto
The port of Trani is unquestionably among the most beautiful of the entire Adriatic coast, pleasant to see, suitable for walks, and equipped for recreational tourism (in fact it is a must for offshore sailing events and for national and international competitions of offshore).
Trani is a natural harbor protected to the east by the S.Antonio pier and to the west by the S. Nicola pier: its banks are completely quayside. Inside the port there are some floating docks managed by the Municipality and the Italian Navy League. There are headlights and lights to facilitate the entrance in the evening: a white lighthouse at the end of the S.Antonio pier, a red fixed light at the end of the same pier of St. Anthony, and a green fixed light placed on the head of the arm of St. Nicholas.
The seabed of the port is sand.
The depths at the quayside reach a depth of 1.50 to 4 m. It counts about 600 berths for a maximum length of 20 m. The equipment of the port includes the Italian Naval League and the Municipal Darsena. There is also a shipyard for boat repairs, a fuel depot with a supply pump, various shops for the sale of nautical equipment and spare parts.
The surface of the port occupied on the ground is 24.880 square meters. The port consists of an inlet defended by two piers: the Molo S. Lucia and the Molo Sant'Antonio, the first is quayside and equipped with columns and mooring rings. The arm of St. Nicholas, to the north, attenuates the burial of the port, which can reach a value of up to 50 cm a year.
All the internal shores of the port are quayside: the quay of the Molo Santa Lucia, 48 meters long with the surface of the square of about 1,400 square meters, is used to moor small cargo ships (max 500 GRT) and does not provide cargo depots; the adjacent stretch of the Santa Teresa quay, 215 meters long, is used to moor fishing boats; the Semina quay and part of the La Conca quay, 109 m long, are reserved for the fishing fleet; the quays of Piazza Quercia and Piazza Tiepolo, 450 meters long, are reserved for pleasure craft.
The port area is full of pizzerias, pubs, quaint restaurants, which attract Italian and foreign tourists and young people from the limistic cities. The port of Trani is a spectacular setting for city events: for example in the summer, for the celebrations in honor of San Nicola Pellegrino, patron saint of the city, the port becomes a transit place for religious processions, and an ideal place to admire the fires fireworks. On the steps of via Statuti Marittimi there is a bronze statue of San Nicola, commissioned by Cav. Vitantonio De Simone and donated to the city of Trani as a symbol of faith and devotion to the Patron Saint.
