Thank you!
Vigevano is a town and comune in the province of Pavia, Lombardy, northern Italy, which possesses many artistic treasures and runs a huge industrial business. It is at the center of a district called Lomellina, a great rice-growing agricultural centre. But Vigevano is also a city of art, famed for its beautiful historic centre which is among the Borghi più belli d'Italia – the most beautiful villages in Italy. Piazza Ducale is undoubtedly one of the most interesting examples of renaissance urban architecture, and it remains the heart of the town's life.
