“Marca Gioiosa et Amorosa”
Treviso, the provincial capital, is a walled city and is crossed by the river Sile, that runs through the frescoed villas, porticos and ancient monuments. The reflections of the buildings on the waters of the river embellish the city and create a bright and charming scenario. Such a wonder has been the subject of attention in literature, the one that has dedicated the great poet Dante Alighieri in the Divine Comedy, in the ninth Canto of Paradise. The poet reminds in his verses his permanence in Treviso during his exile from Florence.
