Villa godi Vicenza, the city of neoclassicism

The city of Vicenza, together with the 24 Venetian villas built by Andrea Palladio, have been included in the World Heritage List in 1994. It is the world list of all the most prestigious cultural heritages in the world, protected by UNESCO. The city of Vicenza, renamed also the city of Palladio, in fact hosts the main jewels of civic architecture created by the master. This is the Olympic Theater (teatro olimpico), the Palladian Basilica and the Palazzo Chiericati, now home to the city’s civic museum. The architectural model of the Vicentine buildings has been exported to the world, and is much imitated. For example the White house in Washington and Buckingham Palace are both designed in the Palladian style, following the plans imagined by Palladio.

Villa Godi palladio is representative of the Vicenza area and of the works of the famous architect. Nowadays, besides being a very well preserved example of a Venetian villa, it is a noble country house. This palace houses the palaeontological museum of animal and vegetable fossils of from the area.

Villa godi : romantic atmosphere

The garden of the villa godi venezia was designed by the landscape architect Antonio Caregaro Negrin in the nineteenth century. The style is that of a romantic English garden with two and a half kilometers of avenues, waterways and ponds, enriched by fine statues and cherubs.

The Park also houses special corners dedicated to reflection and meditation, such as the corner of memories and the corner of silence.
