MURAROCK
Ten days of concerts as well as of Food and Wine in Bavarian and Venetian style.
 

Every night a different tribute band will liven up the evening. The kitchen offers a typical Oktoberfest menu: pork knuckle and different types of Frankfurter served with Bavarian mustard, in addition to grilled chicken and the inevitable Sauerkraut and French fries. A second “local” menu made of traditional Venetian dishes is available: fried fish or sausage with cornmeal mush. Who submits the entrance ticket of the medieval parapet walk gets 15 % off on the “local” menu (minimum required amount € 15). The access to the ramparts is located at the Tourist Office IAT, Porta Bassano (northern gates). The election of Miss Murarock on Sunday 24th, the last day of Murarock, will top off the event.

The foundation of Cittadella dates back to 1220, when Padova decided  to found “ex novo” a fortified castle in the central area of the Venetian  plain in order to protect the boundary lines of its countryside from the aggression of  Treviso and Vicenza, and also to control the local Lords and to start a policy of agricultural colonisation.

Political, military and economic reasons are therefore at the root of the founding  of Cittadella, even though this area had been populated since ancient  times: although materials evidencing the Paleo-Venetian civilisation  are lacking, it has been proven that the Romans had  been here since the II century B.C. In 148 B.C. they built the Postumia  road, an artery that runs through Northern Italy connecting Genoa and  Aquileia; parts of this road remained viable until the  XI century. Another important axes was the road that connected Padova to the  Valsugana. On these two important orthogonal axes (decuman and cardo, respectively) the Romans rationally organised the territory with the centuriation in 89 B.C., leaving their indelible mark on the area. The choice of the site of Cittadella isn’t therefore accidental: it is located on the southern borders of a large Agro Centuriato at the feet of the Pre-Alps of Bassano. It can rely on the proximity of the River Brenta and the resurgence belt, as well as important road axes. At the end of Roman domination, the territory was likely under
 control of the Longobards, even if sources from the Early Middle Age are limited. Most probably a general depopulation was occurring then and the environment grew wild, while other feudal powers developed around small towns like Onara, Fontaniva, Tombolo, and Galliera.Between the 12th and 13th centuries the municipal territory of Padova started a vigorous expansionist policy and clashed therefore with Treviso and Vicenza. The area of the middle Brenta became a theatre for wars and the emergence of Cittadella must be seen in this context.
Between 1237 and 1256, Cittadella suffered the terrible domination of the local lordling Ezzelino III of Romano, who had built in 1251 the “Torre di Malta” (tower of Malta) as a horrible prison for his enemies. Over the 14th and 15th centuries the town was again under control of the Carraresi from Padova and became a real stronghold in the territory of Padova. In
 1406, just like all the Venetian mainland, Cittadella passed under the political dominion of Venice that sent its podestà (governor). The Serenissima (Venice) ruled over these lands until 1797, when Napoleon, during his Italian campaign, conquered all the north. After the treaty of Vienna (1815), Veneto submitted to Austria until 1866, when it finally entered the united“Regno d’Italia” (italian kingdom). Nowadays Cittadella belongs to the province of Padova, counts about 20,000 inhabitants and encompasses on a territory of about 36 km².
