Yesterday morning me and my husband were lucky enough to escape the rain and visit a spectacular historical palace. Right in the heart of town, the Palazzo Verità Poeta is a fine XVIII century building, home of one of the oldest noble families of Verona.
Emanuele Bevilacqua, offspring of the Verità Poeta family, has thoroughly restored the palace to its original splendour with the help of a mutual friend, Giovanna, a skilled art restorer. Today this noble mansion is no longer inhabited but it is a renowned venue for the finest receptions: dream wedding parties, classical concerts, special meetings and so on.
He invited us in to see the latest works being carried out by Giovanna in the ancient cellars where a roman wall is still to be seen.
After about an hour spent chatting in the Salone delle Feste (while the fabulous cotto tiles were being polished to reveal a glossy surface) ...I began to daydream... I saw our furniture scattered in this 120 square meters salon...and it was time to go... Wake up Valeria!
