Vicenza is an extraordinary artistic masterpiece thanks to Palladio's buildings which are incorporated in a historical fabric and determine its whole aspect. For this reason, the city has greatly influenced European and world architecture and city planning rules. In 1995, with this motivation, the capital city of the Berici hills was listed, quite rightly, in Unesco's World Heritage List. This prestigious award announced all over the world the beauty and the linearity of the shapes and colours which characterise the historic heart and the magical views of this splendid city. Vicenza is still permeated by the spirit of Andrea Palladio, the architect who skillfully interpreted local noblemen's wishes.
