In this chapter we discuss about of the surprising, quiet and mysterious cities Trissino, set along the green valley of Agno.

Trissino is a dynamic city located between green hills and along the course of the Agno stream, an important source for the growth of the city and for industrial development. The town is partly included in the Lessinia Natural Regional Park, more precisely in the eastern Vicenza area, where it divides down into two hilly slopes. Going up the Agno Valley you enter the territory of Trissino, whose history is intertwined with that of the homonymous family of Germanic origin to which the humanist cardinal who discovered Andrea Palladio belonged.

Trissino

During the expansion of the old cemetery in the city in 1981, a wall of about twenty meters came to light, a "dolium", a large food container made of terracotta and other ceramic material dating back to the period of the second iron age, that is, from the V to the first century BC Among the materials found, a fragment of torque was also found, or a necklace twisted with silver knots, of great value. It is a characteristic ornament of the Celtic people, who inhabited the region of Venezia Giulia.

Trissino

Certainly worth visiting is Villa Trissino Marzotto, it is a majestic and enchanting house that stands on the ruins of an ancient castle, built at the behest of the Germanic Trissino family. In 1700 it was transformed into a villa by the architect Francesco Muttoni, who also took care of the arrangement of the gardens, from which you have a splendid view of the Agno valley.

Inside the villa preserves frescoes, a collection of tapestries made by the Belgian school Willem de Pannemaker around 1550, cartoons by Raphael and Giulio Romano and a picture gallery with the Macchiaoli collection. An event not to be missed is the famous "Festa del Gnocco" a gastronomic event held in Selva di Trissino, in the week of late August and early September.
