Badia Polesine is located to the west of the capital and stands on a stripf of land between the Adige river and the Adigetto canal, bordering the province of Padova and Verona.
Immersed in a seductive landscape, between wild nature and long waterways, which have marked the history of these lands, increasing and destroying it at the same time, where the ingenuity of man has always had to be the master, to be able to survive in this particularly grouchy environment.
The ancient name of this pretty city was La Badia, with reference to the Abbey of Santa Maria della Vangadizza, which was founded by the Benedictine order in the thirteenth century, and which then passed to the Camaldolese order until it was suppressed in age Napoleonic.
The Social Theater, a nineteenth-century building, is considered a "small Phoenix" in the hinterland. Its interior is a riot of gilding and carvings by the artist Luigi Voltolini. The church of San Giovanni Battista, built in the mid-18th century, is the place of worship in the city.
One of the symbols of the city is the Estensi Palace with an elegant and well-structured appearance, dating back to the 1400s and in late Gothic style. It is characterized in the lower part by a portico with three rows of arches, instead the upper part is distinguished by the pointed windows, divided by two columns in three openings, on which three round arches rest.
These typical marble pillars resume the Venetian style, embellishing the configuration of the window in a Gothic-flowery style.
