The wonders of Antonio Canova: the Temple, the Museum and the Villa

Possagno
Not Rated

Description

An experience that begins on the doorstep of the house of Antonio Canova, the great neoclassical sculptor, author of such works as Love and Psyche, who was born in Possagno at the foot of the Treviso mountains more than 200 years ago.

Here, you’ll discover his home, now a museum and gypsotheca on a tour that will leave you breathless, amid the white plasterwork, the history of the 19th-century gallery and the modern Carlo Scarpa hall.
Walk up to the long way that leads to the Temple, a combination of the Parthenon and Pantheon that Canova gifted to the city of Possagno and that today holds the tomb of the great artist. The climb into the dome of the Temple is an experience not to be missed and one you will take with you!
And finally, with a walk of half an hour we reach the nearby Villa Premoli, that probably also Canova visited, an elegant 17th-century Villa now a charming Agriturismo that produces Olive Oil and organic Prosecco DOCG. Here we will end this pleasant experience with a tasting in the garden or in the ancient “canevon” cellar with Paola and Enrico, the owners of the Villa.
