Oratorio del Gonfalone Vicenza

by ValeryCollins

Does anyone know the history of this church? I have tried the usual sources but I have found very little information.

Wikapedia has a fairly good beginning and you can take the links and/or info offered further by searches.

Re: Oratorio del Gonfalone Vicenza

Yes, this church in Vicenza appears to be little known indeed...the Wikipedia articles refer primarily to the headquarters in Rome and another one in Marino (which is just south of Rome). Even the Italian Wikipedia does not have an article on the church in Vicenza.

It seems, Valery, that learning to read Italian will help you if you keep on discovering obscure places to research ;-) (although, obscure places have the advantage that you can make up stuff about them, since the reader won't know any better anyway ;-) ) PLEASE don't do what Dan Brown did in "Angels and Demons" when he had a major character watching the light from the evening sun fall on the face of St. Peter's in Rome...which is impossible because as 1 billion people know, St. Peter's faces DUE EAST...hahaha, OK, a billion people don't know this, but the error jumped off the page at me...it's one thing to make up stuff about the inside of a building that no one knows, it's another thing to get basic details wrong about well-known stuff...it makes it hard to achieve that willing suspension of disbelief ;-)

In terms of the church, one website belonging to a professional association of artisans says:
"Per la cerimonia del 50° l'Associazione Artigiani di Vicenza, fra le varie iniziative, ha festeggiato il traguardo all'Oratorio del Gonfalone a Vicenza. Questa chiesa, conosciuta da pochi e aperta solo per poche celebrazioni, ospita un altare di grande pregio artistico che fino a qualche tempo fa era segnato dal tempo. Gli artigiani, con la collaborazione della Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Verona, Vicenza, Belluno e Ancona, hanno però firmato un'altra grande opera di restauro riportando l'altare agli antichi splendori."
(For the ceremony of their 50th anniversary, the Association of Artisans of Vicenza, among various initiatives, celebrated the finish at the Oratorio del Gonfalone in Vicenza. This church, known by few and open only for a few celebrations [i.e., Mass], hosts an altar of great artistic value that for some time has been marked by age. The artisans, with the help of Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Verona, Vicenza, Belluno e Ancona [a charitable foundation funded by an institution that is a cross between a bank and a credit union] have put their name to another great restoration job, restoring the altar to its ancient splendor.)

So, while you'll be able to find some stuff about the order that built the place (but who were HQ'd in Rome), it looks like you won't find much about the building in Vicenza, as no one seems to think much of it...

Travel Tips for Vicenza

Vicenza Card

by BruceDunning

The most economical way to see the tourist sites is to purchase a Vicenza card. It saves a lot of money. WE got one that is for three days for 11 Euro. They can be obtained at the tourist office right next to Teatro Olimpia. We tried to purchase ahead of time on line, but to no success.

Number 5

by iandsmith

I had my map with key directions to where best to see Palladio. I was wide-eyed in anticipation, expecting to see colonnades any minute and then, I came across this.
One of the most extraordinary pieces of architecture I've ever seen.
The coral-like doorway surmounted by worked-brick columns was amazing. Then there was the old-style stonework and, above it, classical statues set in lovely fawn coloured stone.
I thought it one of the most outstanding things I'd ever seen, yet all I can tell you is that it's at 5 Contra Porton Luzzo.
Despite enquiries to the extremely-helpful Tourist Information Centre and plunging into the internet, no-one else seemed to know anything about it. It is not listed on the town records as to who the builder or architect was.

Il Duomo - the interiors

by croisbeauty

The inside of the Cathedral is one large nave and seven chapels to right and left. The crypt is reached via stairs in front of the seventh chapel.
The choir, at the top of a large stairway, was designed by Lorenzo da Bologna, in late 1400's, and built by Rocca di Vicenza 1506-1508. The valuable altar was comissioned from Giovanni de Pedemuro and Girolamo Pittoni by Aurelio Dall'Acqua in 1534.

Visit Vicenza, there is a lot more than Palladio. The restaurants serve a lot more authentic Veneto cuisine than those in Veince and the food is much less expensive. Vicenza is a rather quiet town most of the time but we do have our moments!!

Giardino di Piazza Matteotti

by Diana75

The beautiful garden at the entrance to the Olympic Theater is an oasis of peace, with flowers, statues and trees surrounded by old style buildings.

A wonderful place to spend some time and meditate to all the beauties around you.
