Vicenza, Italy

In June 2013 we went on a Mediterranean cruise departing from Venice to Barcelona. So before boarding the cruise ship we took a road trip around the northern part of Italy starting from Venice and covering Treviso, Vicenza, Verona, Milan, Parma, Bologna, and Ferrara.

The photographs taken during this road trip had been processed but never fully published so I have taken the opportunity to re-process these photos using the latest CaptureOnePro software system. I am always amazed when I go back through my photo catalogue and do some re-processing as I can usually get so much more out of the original RAW images using the most up to date software as well as my much improved processing workflow.

Vicenza is a city in northeastern Italy. It is in the Veneto region at the northern base of the Monte Berico, where it straddles the Bacchiglione River. Vicenza is approximately 60 kilometres (37 mi) west of Venice and 200 kilometres (120 mi) east of Milan.

It’s known for the elegant buildings designed by the 16th-century architect Andrea Palladio. These include the Palladian Basilica and the Palazzo Chiericati, now home to an art gallery. Nearby, also by Palladio, the Teatro Olimpico replicates a classic outdoor theater, indoors. On the outskirts of town, the hilltop Villa La Rotonda has 4 identical facades.

Villa La Rotonda is a Renaissance villa just outside Vicenza in northern Italy, and designed by Andrea Palladio. The proper name is Villa Almerico Capra Valmarana, but it is also known as La Rotonda, Villa Rotonda, Villa Capra and Villa Almerico. The name “Capra” derives from the Capra brothers, who completed the building after it was ceded to them in 1592. Along with other works by Palladio, the building is conserved as part of the World Heritage Site “City of Vicenza and the Palladian Villas of the Veneto”.
