Treviso, city of art and architecture. Treviso city rich in history, in the tradition of the great Serenissima. Going around the Venetian capital and its surroundings, it is not difficult to come across breathtaking views of immense historical, architectural and artistic value.
PIAZZA DEI SIGNORI
You can only start from the beating heart of the Venetian capital of Treviso and from the main example of its architectural art, namely Piazza dei Signori. Here it is possible to see the civic tower, seat of the Signoria, the Palazzo dei Trecento, seat of the Maggior Consiglio, the Palazzo Pretorio and the seat of the Pinacoteca. Once the square called Maggiore, but curiously it has changed several denominations over the centuries, including Piazza Grande, Piazza del Popolo, Piazza dei Nobili.
THE FOUNTAINS OF THE TITS
Not far from Piazza dei Signori there is one of the main attractions of Treviso, the Fountain of Tits. Inaugurated in 1559 to celebrate the new mayor, it was located halfway between the cathedral and the Palazzo dei Trecento. On special occasions, she broke white and red wine with breasts. The original statue was lost and then found: today it is visible in the loggia of the Palazzo dei Trecento.
VILLA MANFRIN AND THE TALKING TREES PARK
Another example of unique beauty in the surroundings of Treviso is Villa Manfrin, designed by the Venetian architect Giannantonio Selva, the same who created the La Fenice Theater in Venice. Once the seat of the Carabinieri, today it is closed to the public. But in its park, and in particular in the splendid theater and in the cedar, there are today the attractions of the Park of the Talking Trees, the first in Italy dedicated to communication and multimedia for children.
