Via Terraglio, a tree-lined street of villas, originates in Mestre and runs right up to the city of Treviso, an astoundingly intricate urban setting full of large buildings and canals, impressive churches and frescoed porticoes. Treviso is a place where quiet corners and imposing plazas alternate to create a pleasing balance. As depicted in this book, Treviso demonstrates how art, architecture and history are an integral part of living well, as are good food, fine wine and recreational activities. Treviso has traditionally been a quiet, calm and welcoming city. While in recent years the successful exhibits staged at the Casa dei Carraresi have brought it a higher profile, it remains a place where the seasons truly make themselves felt, each one evoking different emotions and sensations with its particular colors and flavors. All of this is set against the larger backdrop of the Marca, one of Italy’s loveliest areas in terms of both the natural setting and the historic cities that dot its hills and vineyards.
