Culture in Veneto
Veneto has something to offer to those who travel to learn more about the world, to those who believe that to understand the present we need to know about the past, to those who love the fruits of the creativity and skill of the generations that came before.
Civilized three thousand years ago, it still has the image and the spirit of the centuries of the Serenissima Republic of Venice, but enriched with a vibrant local identity, with original and unique cultural experiences. Tourists who are keen on culture will be satisfied with their exploration and discovery of the Veneto region. These tourists can see the works of certain artists, see World Heritage Sites or get to know places of particular value.
The Veneto is also the privileged site of experimentation and performing exhibitions of various branches of contemporary arts that are often attentive to the dialogue with the host environment, and its tradition.
The tourist who comes to the Veneto region looking for culture, art and history is never disappointed.
Padua (Italian: Padova [?pa?dova] ( listen), Latin: Patavium, Venetian: Padoa, German (historically): Esten) is a city and comune in the Veneto, northern Italy. It is the capital of the province of Padua and the economic and communications hub of the area. Padua's population is 214,000 (as of 2011). The city is sometimes included, with Venice (Italian Venezia) and Treviso, in the Padua-Treviso-Venice Metropolitan Area, having a population of c. 1,600,000.
Padua stands on the Bacchiglione River, 40 km west of Venice and 29 km southeast of Vicenza. The Brenta River, which once ran through the city, still touches the northern districts. Its agricultural setting is the Venetian Plain (Pianura Veneta). To the city's south west lies the Euganaean Hills, praised by Lucan and Martial, Petrarch, Ugo Foscolo, and Shelley.
It hosts the renowned University of Padua, almost 820 years old and famous, among other things, for having had Galileo Galilei among its lecturers.
The city is picturesque, with a dense network of arcaded streets opening into large communal piazze, and many bridges crossing the various branches of the Bacchiglione, which once surrounded the ancient walls like a moat.
Padua is the setting for most of the action in Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew.
