Rovigo

Rovigo, the provincial capital, is a modern town with many historic buildings of interest such as the medieval towers in Pighin Street and the two leaning towers: the Donà, one of the highest italian medieval towers, and the Mozza tower.
There are also many examples of Renaissance architecture: Palazzo Roverella, which houses the art gallery, Palazzo dell'Accademia dei Concordi, and the cathedral dedicated to St. Stephen, pope and martyr, the interior of which contains numerous sculptures and paintings.
The Santa Maria del Soccorso church, also known as the "Rotonda" due to its' characteristic octagonal form, is very interesting for a spectacular series of paintings, sculptures and decorative elements.
