Prato della Valle – Four steps on the real “liston”

0
Like many cities in the Veneto, Padua also has its 'liston'. For the natives who may have forgotten it and for those who come from outside, the term derives from a dialect word indicating the marble slabs used to pave the squares, from which derives the expression "far el liston", which means "walking around the square". However, there is some confusion in Padua over the concept of the liston. While it is true that in ancient times the Paduans called the stretch of Prato della Valle in front of the Loggia Amulea, paved with trachyte in the first half of the nineteenth century, today the liston means the pedestrian street that starts from Piazza Garibaldi to the end of Via Roma, passing through the heart of the city.
