and am to Padua come, as he that leaves a shallow plash to plunge in the deep. And with satiety seesk to quench his thrist
(W. Shakespeare - The taming of the Shrew - Act 1 Scene 1)
On the 400th anniversary of the death of the famous English playwright who set “The taming of the shrew” here, we propose a visit to discover the 16th century town as it probably appeared to Shakespeare’s eyes.
A journey on one of our vehicles through the town will make it possible to discover the aspects, structure and areas of the historic centre, followed by guided visits to the Basilica of Saint Anthony and the Lodge and Odeo Cornaro, a “multimedial” renaissance complex created by Alvise Cornaro, closely linked to the name of Ruzzante, well-known and praised author of enjoyable 16th century comedies . After lunch at the renowned Caffè Pedrocchi, the visit will end at the Specola, the ancient astronomical observatory inside the ancient Carrara castle
