View of Sacile from the Livenza river

The charm and magic of the city by the river

Painting a a view of Sacile from the Livenza river during the #italiagrandsketchingtour.

Another stop on my tour around Friuli Venezia Giulia was Sacile. Another name in my head that I never had the opportunity to visit before. The town is built on the the Livenza, the perennial river that flows along an evocative urban landscape that captures for its beauty. Its banks, the countryside and the natural landscape within the city intensify the charm of the town making it almost magical.

Sacile’s historical centre was born from a tight relation with the river: the present-day Piazza del Popolo, was in fact a dock for merchant ships. I have chosen to draw a corner near the square. A place that inspired me with the architectural artistic combination of styles and the presence of the river as a connection to the whole. Many corners of the town could be painted, but this was my choice for this visit. I believe more will come through time because the town is worth a deeper exploration and to be captured many times through the lenses of art.
