Ca' Zanzotto_ credit Angelo Bressan

By Paolo Colombo A house-museum dedicated to one of the most prominent poets of the second half of the twentieth century.

Aldo Rebuli: walls with something to say


By Marina Grasso “When I was fourteen, I found it thrilling to go out at night into the hills of Valdobbiadene, where I was born and raised, to tag my signature on abandoned walls with spray paints.

Luigi’s heroism


Heroism comes in many forms. The best-known definition when speaking about the tradition of the Conegliano Valdobbiadene hills refers to the challenging cultivation of vineyards perched on slopes whose gradient sometimes exceeds 30%. Working such hillsides is so arduous that it can rightly be defined as ‘heroic viticulture’. But there is another type of heroism […]
