Introduction

Useful, handy, quick and easy to use...

This is the fi rst edition of a new, exclusive guide book that Salvagnini

has dedicated to all of you. A book about our places: those where

Salvagnini was born, where it has grown up and where it

continues to create innovation. Places with a long history and

fascinating beauty that captures the eyes. Places you will

want to explore, discover, travel through and talk about.

Salvagnini and its surroundings, Vicenza and Verona,

are the places described in this fi rst Salvagnini guide

book that we have chosen to call “Free Book”. A book in

which the countryside and the cities are described in our

own way, the way we feel them. A book as free as the time

you dedicate to them, for the pure pleasure of travelling.

Salvagnini Free Book is a special guide book. It is a collection of sensations,

memories and writings that it wants to share with you. It wants to guide

you, to walk with you, to take you to discover the tastes and fl avours of

the territory it describes. A special book: handy, quick,

pleasing and easy to read; a book that does not want to be

extensive but concentrated. A book entirely dedicated

to travelling. This Salvagnini Free Book will take you

to this castle here, to that village or event there; and

who knows where else in its future editions?

Salvagnini and its surroundings

Villas and castles - Villa Fracanzan Piovene

Villa Fracanzan Piovene is an

important work by Francesco

Muttoni (1668 - 1747), the architect

from Lugo, who came to Vicenza at

the end of the 17th century.

The monumental baroque structure,

rare in the Veneto, is famous for

its many decorative elements in

the Palladian tradition. A large

barchessa with twelve arches

connects the villa

to the old 13th

century courtyard.

The museum on

“Everyday life and

work in the villa”,

the farm buildings,

the collections

of farm tools

and old tractors and the

chamberlain’s house will allow you

to breathe the atmosphere of the

past. The countryside around the

villa is glorious.

Salvagnini and its surroundings

Villas and castles - Villa Pisani Ferri “Rocca Pisana”

This villa, built by Vittore

Pisani in 1576, was designed

by Palladio’s pupil Vincenzo

Scamozzi. It was built on a hill

near Lonigo, on the ruins of a

fort called the Rocca, destroyed

by Ezzelino da Romano, after

which it was named. Pisani

chose this pleasant place as

a refuge from the humidity

and malaria of the rice fields

in Bagnolo. A dome is placed

on a cube with incredible

elegance. The Roman stairs

on the main façade lead to the

neoclassical pronaos with six

Ionian columns, the toothed

tympanum and the octagonal

dome on top of it. A picturesque

effect is obtained by alternating

light and shadow, fullness

and emptiness. The sides are

dominated by the serliane, the

16th century version of the

classical style. The magnificent

view over the plain on clear

days may reach as far as the

Apennines. Light fills the large

round hall inside the villa

through the open dome, lightly

touching the walls with their

niches and windows.

Salvagnini and its surroundings

Art & Wine - Piovene Porto Godi Alessandro

The old name of Toara, a lovely

historical place near Vicenza, was

Thovara (good land). Vines have

been grown and wine produced

here since the 15th century. The

vineyards extend from the foot of

the hill up to about 250 meters

above sea level.

The grapes grown are red Tocai,

the traditional and exclusive wine

of the Beric hills, Cabernet Franc

and Sauvignon, Merlot, Sauvignon,

white Pinot and Garganega.

The famous white Campigie is a

Sauvignon obtained from

well-ripened grapes, matured

in wooden barrels for six

months; there is an excellent

red Cabernet; the Pozzare is

a mixture of Cabernet Franc

and Sauvignon, aged in small

barrels of French oak for

more than a year. Very good results

have been obtained with the

Merlot “Fra i Broli”, with its deep

and intense aroma, obtained from

three different clones of Merlot and

aged in barrels for fi fteen months.

But it is the red Tocai, the local

variety par excellence of the Beric

hills, which the company bets on to

create the wine of the territory.

Art & Wine - Villa Pigafetta Camerini also known as “Villa Montruglio”

After the main gate, a path

leads uphill and through a

centuries-old park of ash

and pine trees and cedars of

Lebanon.

After the last bend and the rich

wrought-iron gate appears the

villa Camerini Pigafetta, also

called “Villa Montruglio”, with

a large front lawn geometrically

delimited by the walls. The

villa was originally designed by

the architect Antonio Pizzocaro

in 1680.

The chapel which looks

towards the valley and the

singular tympanum on the

top of the façade were added

in the second decade of the

18th century. Both have been

attributed to Francesco Antonio

Muttoni.

The statues on the façade

are probably from the famous

Marinali school.

The central hall on the first

floor is decorated with frescoes

by Francesco Aviani, which are

some of the few documented

works of the artist.

Salvagnini and its surroundings

Art & Wine - Villa Dal Ferro-Lazzarini

The company was founded in

1961, around a charming 15th

century villa, which had no

vineyards at that time. The

first vineyards were planted by

Alfredo Lazzarini in 1962 on

the southern slopes of the Beric

hills at about 280 meters above

sea level, on an undulating

surface of about 10 hectares.

The grapes grown are Merlot,

Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon,

White Pinot and Rhine Riesling.

In 1996, a new and modern

vineyard was planted on the

“ashes” of the old Black Pinot

Nero, on a flat surface of about

3.5 hectares facing south-east

that could easily be irrigated,

a real boost for the Company.

The vineyards are managed by

Pamela Lazzarini

who is also in charge

of making and

subsequently selling

the wine, together

with oenologist

Giuseppe Carcereri

De Prati.

Vicenza in brief

Not to be missed - The town

Teatro Olimpico

The Teatro Olimpico, one of the

world’s most beautiful theatres, was

built in 1580.

S. Corona

The churches of Vicenza contain

extraordinary artistic treasures: in

the gothic temple of S. Corona you

can admire the “Baptism of Christ”,

G.B. Bellini’s masterpiece, the

“Adoration of the Magi” by P. Veronese

and an enchanting view of Vicenza by

Fogolino.

Piazza dei Signori

Piazza dei Signori, as it is now,

is the result of many centuries

of history that have left indelible

traces in the main town square.

It is dominated by the marble

Basilica or the “Palace of Justice”

(built in 1549), the marvellous

masterpiece by A. Palladio who

also built the beautiful Loggia

del Capitaniato (1571) facing the

Basilica.

Corso Palladio

The Palazzo Braschi Brunello

and the Palazzo da Schio, also

called Cà d’Oro, belong to the most

elegant gothic period; the Cogollo

residence built by Palladio and the

Palazzo Trissino, now the Town

Hall, built by V. Scamozzi, belong

to the Renaissance; the Palazzo

Zileri by O. Calderari and all the

palaces in Corso Palladio date from

the 17 th century. This important

street begins with the Palazzo

Bonin Thiene Longare and the

Palazzo Chiericati.

Situated in the green plain of

the Veneto, at the foot of the

Beric hills where the rivers

Retrone and Bacchiglione

meet, the town of Vicenza is

universally known as the “town

of Palladio”, rich in art, splendid

architecture and harmonious

proportions.

Basilica di Monte Berico

The Basilica of Monte Berico, built

where the Virgin Mary appeared

to Vincenza Pasini during the

1426/1428

plague, is visited

by millions of

pilgrims every

year.

La Rotonda

On the hills or

in the plains

around the town, the nobles of

Vicenza have built some of the most

beautiful villas of the Veneto: for

instance, the Valmarana ai Nani

(“of the dwarves”), decorated by

Giambattista and Giandomenico

Tiepolo, and the famous Rotonda

built by Andrea Palladio. A writer

said that, more than a villa, the

Rotonda has the grandeur of a temple

erected to nature, art and beauty by

a man from Vicenza who was rightly

called ‘the prince of architects”.

Verona in brief

Not to be missed - The town

The city walls have protected

precious gems of art, history

and culture for more than

two thousand years. These

extraordinary remains provide

a unique and charming setting

for both its citizens and visitors

from all over the world. The city’s

historical and cultural heritage

has enchanted artists and

travelers throughout the ages.

Arena

The Arena amphitheatre is the

most famous monument in Verona

and is a must-see for all the visitors

that come here from all over the

world. Located in Piazza Bra’, the

amphitheatre of Verona dates back

to the 1st century A.D., between

the end of the Empire of Augustus

and that of Claudius. It is the third

biggest amphitheatre in Italy after

the Colosseum and the Capua

amphitheatre and has an elliptical

shape in order to guarantee perfect

acoustics from each point and to

hold a great number of spectators.

Juliet’s House

“There is no world outside the walls

of Verona”: the words of William

Shakespeare have made Verona

eternal, thanks to the tragedy of the

two young lovers, Romeo Montague

and Juliet Capulet. The sad story

of their love takes place in two

particular places, Juliet’s house and

Juliet’s tomb. The Capulet house,

better known as Juliet’s House, dates

back to the 13th century. It is a tower

house that belonged for a long time to

the Dal Cappello family: their coat of

arms can be found on the arch inside

the courtyard. The bare brick façade

is decorated by elegant three-lobe

windows, one of which is the famous

balcony from which Juliet is said to

have talked to Romeo.

Church of San Zeno

The San Zeno cathedral is without

doubt one of the most beautiful

Romanesque churches in Italy. The

intense colours given by the tuff

stone, used alone or alternated with

brick, imprints itself immediately on

the minds of visitors. San Zeno, of

African origin, was the 8th Bishop of

Verona (about 362-380). The original

church was restored during the 6th

century.

Church of San Lorenzo

Outside the walls of the Roman

Verona, near to Porta dei Borsari, in

the area between Via Postumia (now

Corso Cavour) and the right banks

of the Adige, arises a cathedral of

Verona in brief

Not to be missed - The town

enormous historical and artistic

importance, dedicated to San

Lorenzo. Presumably belonging to

the era of San Zeno (4th century),

it was radically restored after an

earthquake in 1117 and a transept,

ladies’ galleries and scalar towers

were added.

Duomo architectural complex

What you see today of the

Cathedral dedicated to St. Maria

Assunta is the fi nal result of several

interventions that have been

carried out to the edifi ce along

the centuries, both in terms of

location and architecture. Rather

than being a single building, the

Cathedral is an architectural

complex, formed of S. Giovanni in

Fonte and S. Elena. It is of great

artistic and architectural interest.

Roman Theatre

One of the greatest Roman

complexes in northern Italy; from

its location facing the curve in the

Adige, you can grasp the city in all

its extension. It was necessary to

adapt the side of the hill to build it;

following the Greek examples, the

steps for the audience were created

by digging an inverted semicircular

cone in the hillside.

Giusti Gardens

The Giusti Gardens are the only

16th century Italian gardens

present in Verona. A green island

10 minutes from the Arena, where

you can fi nd collections of fl owers,

important Roman remains and an

impressive lane of cypress trees

which preserves all its original

characteristics untouched.

Piazza delle Erbe over

the centuries

Piazza delle Erbe was the core of the

civil, economic, social and religious

life of Verona for many centuries,

from the days of the Romans to the

days of Della Scala family. Today you

can still recognize the symbols of

the past in the numerous remains,

palaces and architectural elements

of a stratifi ed puzzle that has

witnessed numerous changes in the

shape, appearance and functions of

one of the most signifi cant squares

in Verona.
