This old farm-house is a typical old building that you can admire traveling the venetian country. It is built on a crossing of the Graticolato Romano (The Roman Grating designed to demarcate the lands north of Padua given by Augustus Emperor to the legionary veterans) of the "cardo" C.K. III, a main polar road, and "decumano" S.D.X, a corresponding perpendicular. The Cardi and the Decumani are 710 metres one from the other and seen from above appear as the corner of a Street and Avenue in New York, in a Roman town planning. The Graticolato Romano is actually to be meant as a gigantic crossword, which was defining the properties limits (see it in Google Earth!)
