Travel Tips for Rovigo
El Cogheto is one of the oldest and most traditional bars in Rovigo. It is located under the arcades that lead to Piazza Vittorio Emanuele II, so it's right in the city centre. I suggest you should go there and have a coffee or a cappuccino with a brioche when you visit my town.
Liceo Classico Celio
This building hosted the "liceo classico" (high school for classical studies, I haven't found an English equivalent), which I attended from 1997 to 2002. This palace in fascist style remains in the memories of a lot of students. My grand-father also studied there in the 1940s, too (but he didn't attend high school, just some inferior classes).
The name of the school comes from Domenico Celio, a Renaissance humanist.
TCI guidebook "Rovigo e provincia"
If you can read some Italian, you should buy the guidebook Rovigo e provincia published by Touring Club Italiano in 2009. It covers thoroughly the town and all the province and represents a great improvement in comparison with the guidebook Veneto, where only few pages are dedicated to this land.
The palace formerly used as a seminary was built from 1779 to 1794. Today, it houses the Archivio di Stato ("Record Office").
The façade of the building is very plain and the only interesting architectural feature is this window with tympanum and balustrade. Inside there is a beautiful cloister.
Palazzo Camerini-Rusconi, built in the 19th century, is one of the several palaces you can see in via Celio. The sculptures on its façade represent several work activities of the past. You can see them in this travelogue.
