This video shows the history of two great Italian musicians in the period of their lives in which their activities took them to Vicenza, worldwide known as the city of Palladio.

Biagio Marini - whose works constitute a cornerstone in the history of violin technique - was choirmaster of the Vicenza Cathedral from 1655, while Antonio Vivaldi directed (and played the part of the principal violin in) his play Ottone in Villa and his oratorio La vittoria navale in Vicenza in 1713.

The performance on period instruments takes us back to the atmosphere of the time in the splendid setting of Palazzo Leoni Montanari, a masterpiece of Venetian late seventeenth century.
