Breakfast in hotel.
Visit to Villa “Ai Nani”. Unique because of its wall and a row of statues on top of it , the Villa features one of the most important jewels of the Italian art: the pictorial cycle of ‘sale del Tasso’ by Giambattista Tiepolo and his son Giandomenico.
Afterwards visit to Villa Loschi Zileri Dal Verme, also famous for a series of frescoes by Tiepolo. The residence is one of the main examples of the country architecture of the XV century.
Lunch in the Restaurant (it is not included in the tour).
In the afternoon, transfer to Bassano del Grappa.
Visit to Villa Giusti del Giardino, a seventeenth-century residence of Zambelli family. In the eighteenth century, two colonnaded extensions were added to the villa; and at the beginning of 900’, at the back of the building, a pronaos with huge ionic columns that support two terraces was also built.
Stop at Distillerie Nardini to admire the famous ” Bolle di Fucsas”.
On top, suspended among crowns of trees planted by Pietro Porcinai, two nests of glass between the legs of a steel flamingo; and underneath, an auditorium.
The transmutation of the substance -“to distill is like the water which evaporates from the earth and returns in the form of rain”-becomes the representations of the heaviness of soil and the volatile lightness of alcohol: at the beginning of the process, the vine with its dirty roots, and at the end, the enchanted alembic where juices are decanted and changed into liquor.
Return to the Hotel for dinner.
