Veneto...Not Just Venice

Today I spent most of the day in the Veneto region of Italy, making contacts for the upcoming concerts that I am organizing in conjunction with Varna International.

Veneto is mostly known for grandiose city of Venice, but other renowned cities lie within the region, such as Verona, Padua, and Vicenza.

Located in northeast Italy, the Veneto region was first inhabited by the Eugenei between the 2nd and 1st millennium BC and was later occupied by the Veneti in the 13th century BC.

In the Middle Ages, Venice rose to a major maritime power, trading with Byzantium and the Muslim world as it dominated the Mediterranean for a thousand years.

Throughout history, this region has enjoyed a significant role in the development of menswear and men’s fashion.

Today, numerous fashionable labels lie within its region.

As you can see, I enjoy driving throughout this industrialized region, stopping at the local pits stops on the highways called Autogrill and eating in various out-of-the-way restaurants in the country side.

Have a peek at a few more shots.
