Marostica is another jewel hidden in the mountains of Treviso. It is known as 'the town of the Living Chess Game'--that is, the town has a big festival and holds a giant chess game using people as pieces. Fantastical Medieval cotumes are used, and the town square is used as the chess board (it is permanently painted that way). Although small, an impressive castle and fortress line the mountainside above it. At the top of the mountain, a most exqusite resaurant awaits (the name of which escapes me for now--but I will try to find out).

Favorite thing: Marostica was built in Roman times, but its development dates back to early medieval period, between the 11th and 13th centuries, the locality was greatly influenced by several members of the important medieval family from the Veneto, known as the Ezzelini. They were finally defeated in 1260. Marostica was a Venetian city until the Italian invasion, which caused a massive evacuation of the local population of the area, who was forced to look for fortune in Brazil and many other parts of the world.
