SANTA MARIA DI SALA
S. Maria di Sala is a small town of 18.000 inhabitants not far from Venice and the cities of Padua and Treviso. A big part of the town area is based on one of the many Roman road systems, commonly called Grids, that date back to the Augustan era (first century BC – first century AC). One of the best preserved monuments is Villa Farsetti. This villa, built in the 1750s, takes its name from the contract development of abbot Filippo Farsetti on the project of Paolo Posi, a Sienese architect. Being a cultural hub and exhibition headquarters, the facility will be home to the Quartiertappa, the beating heart of the pink race, in honor of the 102nd Giro d’Italia.
