Possagno is the birthplace of the greatest neoclassical sculptor Antonio Canova (Possagno 1st November 1757 – Venice 13th October 1822). He left his great art heritage in his own Birth-house and in the nearby solemn Gipsoteca built in 1836. It houses almost all his plaster cast models, terracotta scale models, drawings and paintings.
For this reason we can call it “the big Canovian complex”, which includes a museum, a library and an archive.
A lot of activities are planned to keep this place updated, lively and ready to educate people in art and culture.

On Treviso hills there are massive examples of small villages that have an unique charm.
A few steps from the Piave river, in the municipality of Segusino, the small uninhabited village of Stramare finds life thanks to the “Notes Santa”.
After the centre of Valdobbiadene you reach the village of Combai, surrounded by majestic chestnut trees and vineyards.
On the visual impact is Cison Valmarino with its Brandolini Castle, built on a spur overlooking the valley.
Located in the same municipality, Rolle is the only Italian village protected by the FAI. Here the vineyards create a “postcard sent by the gods” (cit. Andrea Zanotto).
A few kilometers away, in the direction of Vittorio Veneto, the village of Lago lies, with its courtyards and stone houses, which each year hosts the renowned Lago Film Fest.
Nestled in the valley of the river Meschio in the north of Vittorio Veneto, the nucleus of Serravalle was created in the Roman era. They have developed a number of local crafts (mills, forges and foundries ). Going down in direction of the Piave River, the village of Collalto in Susegana is located in a strategic position: from here they can control access from the Piave and the Montel

The Marca of Treviso was a land of battles during the First World War, which preserves the signs. Between 15 and June 21, 1918 the army of Charles of Habsburg worked the last great offensive. On the gravels of the Piave River, on the Montello and sinkholes on the Grappa massif moved an immense humanity to fight the enemy of Austria. Innumerable signs remained, including small bunkers in the hedges and cannons facing the river, between the imposing shrines and british cemeteries.

Meadows, vineyards, farmhouses, waterways and fields prevent arteries and settlements to seize territory.
Hills are embellished by man; shades of green color the landscape and the screws are mixed with other kind of crops and the view, extends deep into the calm plains of Treviso.
It is the landscape that bears witness to a deep connection with rural life. Even today it is clearly visible in the municipality of Refrontolo to Mulinetto Croda, jewel set in the nude “crag”, which continues to grind flour and welcome visitors to discover this rural practiced.
The Maglio di Pagnano (mallet), in the municipality of Asolo, retains the same architectural structure since the 1400, taking advantage of the water wheels to move the mallet used for metalworking.

THE TIPOTECA ITALIANA
Imagine gears of iron and steel and black-coated workers armed with wrench, that make the machines clatter as if they were steam locomotives. This happens at the Tipoteca Italiana. in Crocetta del Montello. It is today a significant example of industrial archeology, which is based at the old Canapificio Veneto, built in the late 9th century. Founded by the will of the Antigas, it collects and researches the cultural Italian patrimony dedicated to the history of printing and typography.
The collections come from the printing and printmakers located throughout the country. The Tipoteca Italiana organizes activities, workshops and training courses taught by Italian and international designers.
