The history of Villeggendo

Villeggendo was born nine years ago from the idea of promoting culture in a unique and exciting way. The main objective is to create a series of travelling events that can engage and fascinate literature lovers, creating a dialogue between culture and authors by offering an inclusive and engaging experience for all in the magical atmosphere of the residences that are a fundamental part of the history of the Serenissima.

A successful partnership with the Abano Ritz

For several years, the Villeggendo festival has had a partnership with the Abano Ritz, one of the historic structures in the Euganean basin. This collaboration arose first and foremost from the sharing of common values and objectives. The Abano Ritz, in fact, has always shown particular sensitivity to culture and art, with the added value of offering guests an extraordinary experience that combines art, relaxation and wellness.
