Discovering Veneto: Possagno (Tempio Canoviano)

Mr and I always wanted to visit Possagno, I had to try my new lens (Nikon 50mm, f1.8, wonderful!!!) and so and last Sunday, it seemed the perfect afternoon for our little trip.
Plus, I found a very nice post about this city, in Silvia's amazing blog, i diari della lambretta.
So, we took the car and we drove to this tiny city...
This city is known because Antonio Canova, the best sculptor of the neoclassicism, built Tempio Canoviano, and because a lot of the plastic works that he did when he was alive are now collected in his house.
At first we visited Tempio Canoviano that is a church (a very wonderful church), and then we visited his house with a guide (best thing ever!!!).

Here's some photos of Tempio Canoviano:

We decided that it was good visiting the dome...
