An Italian city in the Veneto region, Padova is under an hour from Venice if you wish to have a change of scenery in a hurry. The capital of the province of the same name, the city is the economic and communications hub of the region with a population of around the 214,000 mark. Proudly standing on the banks of the Bacchiglione River, Padova has an agricultural aura as it sprawls over the Venetian Plain with the Euganaean Hills hiding in the southwest. It's home to the University of Padua that was founded in 1222. This is where Galileo Galilee was a lecturer and where in 1678 Elena Lucrezia Cornaro Piscopia became the first woman in the world to graduate from university. The university is also home to the oldest anatomy theater that was built in 1594. This city that was once a parade ground for Mussolini and a secret Italian Resistance hub is now where you will find coworking venues. You can get some work done whether you are an inventive local who doesn't wish to leave home or a meandering globetrotter that needs to write home.
Known for its outstanding historical buildings from the incredible 13th Century Basilica of St Anthony with its Byzantine-style domes to the old town's arcaded streets and medieval marketplaces, Padua is an art lover's haven of treasures. It was the setting for Shakespeare's "The Taming of the Shrew" and Oscar Wilde's "The Duchess of Padua". The oldest botanical garden "Orto Botanico di Padova" (think 1545) is a garden of curative herbs that can be found at the university.
Italians have creative culture in their blood, from food to fashion, design to wine and there are plenty of innovative tech savvy souls lingering over espressos. Major tech players such as IBM and Apple are opening up new tech hubs alluding to the fact that there is loads of potential in the Italian market. The government is instigating new initiatives to make it easier for startups to "start up" in light of the fact that it has always had a reputation for being bureaucracy-heavy. Padova may not yet be the tech hub on a par with Turin, Milan or Rome, but it does have its locals who have no desire to move from their beautiful home city. Coworking venues are giving them the space to mingle, to connect and to collaborate in one of the most beautiful cities Italy has to offer.
