The next year started the works and the design was entrusted to the engineer Giuliano Facchinetti, while the facade is attributed to Giovanni Battisti Tessari (first teacher of the “pratic design school for artisans” born in Piove di Sacco in 1852).

Villa Roberti in Brugine is definitely one of the most beautiful renaissance villas in Padua area. It owns one fresco cycle by Giambattista Zelotti and works by Paolo Veronese; moreover it’s distinguished for his unique floor plan. In 1544 the design was entrusted to the architect Andrea Da Valle by Girolamo De Roberti (works ended in 1553). He built the villa on the remains of Maccaruffo’s castle, of which still remain the 14th-century tower (with frescoes of Carrarese’s emblem) and the pit in front of the barn. The outdoor decor shows roman history and mythological aspects. Unfortunately it was mainly lost, while the inside in the bright noble living room there’s still a fresco cycle on mythological themes dated to half 16th century by Giambattista Zelotti and Antonio Fasolo. Paolo Veronese worked on the door-arches. Several upgrades date back to 700s, as well as the stuccoes in noble floor and the wrought-iron gate (1742).

The cavane (cavàne) are shelters for boats tipical of Venice, its lagoon and all the navigable rivers. Maybe the word has the same origin of hut (capanna): in fact in the oldest pictures of the city, the cavane are depicted as shelter covered with straw, like huts. Over the years this type of shelter has been used also for buildings like noble palaces or warehouses. On the side overlooking there is a river and in some cases it is protected by a wood or metal closing. In the terminology of the gondoliers and the taxi drivers the expression “andar in cavana” means the rest of the boat and so the end of the activity. The operation typically consists of berth in a private area, cover the ship with protective towel and close the access (and the passenger compartment in case of water taxi). Cavàne in Codevigo and in Millecampi Valley The plenty of canals and boats in valley Millecampi necessitated building shelters suitable to keep vessels undamaged from bad weather. For this reason the cavane are easliy viewable along the banks in Fogolana area in Codevigo. (text taken from Wikipedia and adapted)

On 2 August 2004, after a renovation of more than one year, took place with a solemn ceremony in the presence of religious and civil authorities the reopening of the little church of Saint Mary of the Assumption called “delle Muneghette”. This place has always been a meeting point for the popular devotion of our town which is particularly loyal to the Marian cult. Every year on 15th August it renews the faith for the feast of the Assumption of the Virgin. Even nowadays the venerable popular tradition remembers when the wooden statue of Madonna with Child disappeared and then reappered near the church from the pit in which it had been thrown. The building, which is probably part of an ancient bigger complex is what’s left of an old female Benedictine convent mentioned in documents since the 13th century. During the following centuries it had been extended and enhanced thanks to the presence of nuns belonging to noble families and in 1520 it joined the St. Anne of Padua’s Benedictine convent. In late 18th century most of the lands (which now includes just the little church) switched to venetian Morosini family and then in early 1900s to the Bauce […]
