Macchiaioli in Padua & Tasting at the historical market Sotto Salone. The Macchiaioli are the architects of the Florentine pictorial movement of the second half of the nineteenth century. They met in the Caffè Michelangiolo, in Florence, a cenacle where they discussed art. Their canvases feature chiaroscuro accentuations, stained colors, which free art from academicism and generate an ‘impression’ painting with simple splashes of color. The Macchiaioli painted what the “real” offered to their eyes: over one hundred masterpieces testifying to the highly emotional world of the Macchiaioli, a world whose essence tells of the values of man, of the heroic and tireless man, of his strength and his courage, his desire to leave day after day in spite of any difficulty.
Tasting Experience at the historic market Sotto Salone in Padua: combine a visit to the Macchiaioli Exposition with a quiet walk in the center with a visit to the Palazzo della Ragione and an aperitif at the Sotto Salone market. The Market is located on the ground floor of the Palazzo della Ragione, built in 1218: here there are various gastronomic specialty shops where you can find all sorts of Paduan specialties and excellence. You will find butchers, fishmongers, greengrocers and many other shops selling local olive oil, meat, cheese and much more. On the other hand, the Salone, on the upper floor, is a large room, one of the largest medieval rooms in the world. The palace separates two squares: Piazza delle Erbe and Piazza dei Frutti, home to the daily fruit and vegetable market. In the little shops of the Market Sotto Salone an aperitif is included which, thanks to the tales of the shopkeepers, you will discover first-hand the Paduan tradition and folklore.
