A few kilometers from Maser lies the town of Fanzolo, where the magnificent Villa Emo is situated, a remarkable example of a country villa which manages to combine in a perfect harmony the forms of ancient architecture with the practical necessities of agrarian life. The interior is richly decorated with frescoes by Giovan Battista Zelotti, inspired by mythology and agricultural life.

    The itinerary continues to Asolo, a charming medieval hillside city, ready to welcome the visitors with its romantic fairytale atmosphere, its art and good tradition. Defined by Carlucci “the city of a hundred horizons” because of its surrounding landscape’s beauty, Asolo inspired many artists and was deeply loved by important figures: it was the luxurious court of Caterina Cornaro – the Queen of Cyprus; refuge of the magnificent Italian actress – Eleonora Duse; residence of the famous English writer and explorer – Freya Stark. In Asolo everything in the historical center deserves attention: from Piazza Garibaldi with its 16th century fountain, to the church of S. Caterina; from the Queen’s Castle with the clock tower, to Palazzo Beltramini. The symbol of the city is the fortress Rocca that dominates Mt. Ricco, offering spectacular views over the surrounding hills of Asolo.

    Not far from from Asolo there is the small town of Possagno, that became worldwide famous for having given birth to the great neoclassical sculptor Antonio Canova. Canova’s Temple appears in its grandiosity at the top of a hill and includes three inspiring elements : the Parthenon in Athens, the Roman Pantheon and the high apse of the Christian basilicas, the symbol of the Christian solemnity. The great plaster models, paintings, sketches and unsold marble by the artist are conserved at the Canovian Gipsoteca. To complete the itinerary, go towards Castelfranco, a historical walled city with a well preserved medieval castle and high defensive walls that surround it. The city of Giorgione invites you to get closer to the mysterious life of the illustrious painter and to his enigmatic paintings. The major works to see are: the Altarpiece depicting the “Madonna and Child Enthroned with Sts Francis and Nicasio” inside the Cathedral and the “Frieze of the Liberal and Mechanical Arts”, fresco that decorate the main hall of the Museum Giorgione’s House. The visit of this territory can be enriched with eno-gastronomic elements: from the wines of the Montello e Colli Asolani DOC denomination to the tasty mushrooms of Montello.

She has been awarded honorary citizenship of Asolo, where she spent the last years of her life.

    Giorgione
