Have you ever stayed in a 17th-century villa with barchessa? Our Villa Antica Corte Marchesini, thanks to the careful conservative restoration, has retained its original charm and is now a beautiful and charming hotel.
This time of year, many events take place in the surrounding areas and if you want to live exciting experiences, you can use our hotel as a base and starting point.
Today we tell you about four different events that we recommend you not to miss!
The well-known Palazzo Zabarella in Padua is 40 minute drive away. Here you can visit the exhibition “Futurism. The birth of the 1910-1915 avant-garde” which investigates the origins of the movement from an unprecedented point of view. It is an experience that delves deeply, researching the cultural and symbolic assumptions behind Futurism, a period characterized by various souls and themes.
The break with the patterns of the past and that revolutionary feeling of renewal and confidence in the future, typical of this artistic movement, are visible in the more than 100 works set up in the different rooms of Palazzo Zabarella. They are all dated from 1910, the year of the foundation of Futurism in painting, to 1915, the date of publication of the famous Manifesto and the entry into the war of Italy. You can let yourself be carried away in this journey back in time thanks to the unpublished or rarely exhibited works of over 45 different lenders.
You have until 26 February 2023 to admire the masterpieces of artists such as Umberto Boccioni, Carlo Carrà, Luigi Russolo, Antonio Sant’Elia, Giacomo Balla, and Gino Severini. The works belong to the same movement but to different shades and visions, such as “Dynamism”, “Simultaneity”, “Three-dimensionality” and “Polymaterialism” universes to discover and explore!
Antiquaria Padova, the experience that makes the difference
If you are passionate about antiques and ancient art, do not miss the 38th edition of Antiquaria Padova. There are over 10,000 visitors among collectors, investors, and enthusiasts who every year cross the gates of the fair for a full immersion in the varied world of antiques. Here you will not only find antique furniture of great value but also tapestries and carpets, paintings from the seventeenth to the twentieth century, curious sculptures, sparkling jewelry, and even silver, glass, and frames!
The beauty of Antiquaria Padova is that there is beauty for all tastes and wallets: from those who visit the fair to make real investments to those looking for an object of rare beauty to give that extra touch to their cozy home.
From 5 to 13 November 2022, you have the opportunity to participate in an event that attracts national and international admirers. The appointment is at Pavilion 1 of the Padua Exhibition Centre.
Staying at the Hotel Antica Corte Marchesini you can go to Padua in a day, visit the fair, maybe even combine the exhibition dedicated to Futurism and take the opportunity to explore a beautiful city full of art, history, and culture!
The great return of the Fair of San Martino in Piove di Sacco
Have you got plans for November 11th? Get ready to experience a long weekend of food, animal exhibitions, typical products, and lots of fun! After two years of stoppage, the “franca” Fair of San Martino, a popular event that has 392 years of history, returns to animate the small Piove di Sacco, the capital of Saccisica.
For the occasion, there will be hundreds of stalls and food stands and you can have fun with the 32 attractions of Luna Park or love art and photographic exhibitions. Also, you should know that the same day takes place the traditional Fair of Livestock and agricultural equipment.
The Fair of San Martino, suitable for couples, friends, and families, is also an opportunity to spend a day in Piove di Sacco, just 13 minute drive from our elegant structure. Woods, towers, museums, churches, palaces, theatres, houses… in the heart of Saccisica you will be spoiled for choice on the fascinating destinations to visit!
The historical re-enactment of the Zogo de l’Oca in Mirano
To complete your stay at the Hotel Antica Corte Marchesini we suggest a dip in the past! Do you know the famous Gioco dell’Oca? In Mirano, on November 13, six teams, representing the capital and its five fractions, will compete with dice to reach box 63 of a great game of the living goose!
In this town in the heart of the triangle between Venice, Treviso, and Padua, there are ancient arcades, elegant palaces, and the large oval of Piazza Martiri that guarantee a scenario capable of transporting participants back in time.
In addition to the boxes of the game that show images of places, characters, and monuments of Mirano, the entire town dresses with memories of the 900, with banners and flags bearing the Savoy coat of arms, signs, and large posters with the first réclame, Shantytowns with one-time games and an amusement park where you can experience the typical entertainment of a time.
Between characteristic disguises and goose-based delicacies, you can end your holiday with Campagna Lupia based with a smile on your face.
Other numerous attractions and events await you in November in our territory, to spend an unforgettable stay in one of the most beautiful historic homes in the area.
