I met an Italian jewellery designer before this trip. He said, ‘you should come to Vicenza. That’s my home. It’s beautiful. A lot of jewellery designers are from there.’ Alright. So, even though it’s not as famous as other touristy places in Italy, I went there.
It’s a little town but it did have some beautiful places. I bought a museum pass and visited Teatro Olympico (the best),Pinacoteca Civica Palazzo Chiericati, Chiesa di Santa Corona (and said hi to Bellini’s painting) and Palladio museum
The Italian designer recommended a restaurant to me. But when I reached there, it was still not opened so I went to a bar next to it. I ordered spritz which was only available in the Veneto region. I met two young Italian students. They recently graduated from university. One of them said they were not too optimistic about the economy. And he said the economic crisis in Europe was affecting everybody and he didn’t see his future. He still wanted to stay in Italy but he didn’t know what to do. It all sounded very sad and depressing. And that was back in 2015. You can imagine. The situation is now even worse.
The next day, with the museum pass, I visited some more museums and galleries: Galleria di Palazzo Leoni Montanari, Museo Naturalistico Archeologico, and Museo Diocesano.
