From these few pages, we can already notice the difference between the Renaissance walled towns, and the medieval ones. Palmanova is the supreme example of the "ideal" town from the Renaissance, built in the flatlands, hence without any natural barrier. Shaping the fortifications like a multi-pointed star guaranteed the best protection in case of a siege.

Palmanova is really an utopia becoming reality.

Sabbioneta, also in northern Italy, is another example of this humanist approach.

This little town, in fact, doesn't look medieval at all.

Cittadella, a small town located halfway between Sabbioneta and Palmanova, is instead a medieval walled town, as a first look at the more primitive, circular shaped fortification walls can tell you.

Once again, the two different fortification systems seen from above (google maps).

Cittadella (medieval)



Palmanova (Renaissance, city built from scratch according to ideals of "perfection", with a fortification system that maximizes the defending capability)



XX century ****ed them both up, with the chaotic constructions sprawling around both towns.

Fantastic updates guys. Thanks for helping me!


Venzone (Friuli-Venezia Giulia) was destroyed by an earthquake in the 70's. Now, it's one of the Italian National Monuments.

It's a nightmare for me see this phrase. How many amazing places were destroyed or distorted its original architecture during last centuries?
