The Michelangelo da Vinci Restaurant Pizzeria is exactly located in Villamarzana just a few minutes from the city center, and was a different and original way to spend the evenings. The name is not casual, in fact brings together the two great geniuses of Italian art: Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo to give life to a unique place of its kind, where in every corner inside and outside there was a work of art. Here could choose between different settings of the Michelangelo da Vinci restaurant: the two real planes (a Douglas DC-6 and a Tupolev TU-134 A), the rustic in a fantastic place surrounded by frescoes and statues in a suggestive mix, or especially on summer evenings the cool in the garden under the giant wings of the two planes. This restaurant had a kitchen that could satisfy all tastes, for example the oval pizza, unique in Italy (50 × 37 cm) or an outdoor barbecue for grilled meat and fish. As for the appetizer, the kitchen offered tasty sandwiches, curious american fried, bruschettas, giant salads, main and second courses…and at the end, excellent homemade desserts, with fresh fish specialities every night. Gigi Stecca, Rovigo’s beer master, was the creator of all this. He is the creator of an original and healthy “invention”: a particular glass with internal grooves that reduces the alcoholic effect of beer (poured in the right way), without losing its freshness and indeed improving its taste. How? A mistery. In the summer season the Michelangelo da Vinci restaurant became disco music pub on Saturday evening, and live music with group dances on Sundays. The evocative locations, the friendliness and courtesy of the staff, made the Michelangelo Da Vinci the ideal setting for private parties and evenings with friends.
At the end, it was a dream, the pizzeria Michelangelo Da Vinci of Villamarzana. Two luxury planes parked in the center of the restaurant, kept together by a real control tower and transformed into a dining room. The Tupolev 134 with the colors of Csa and Dc 6 Lai were leaked to the honors of the chronicles at the end of the nineties when Gigi Stecca had decided to try a pharaonic enterprise: building a small airport near to the Transpolesana road, with a pool, disco and a country house, which has become a kind of museum dedicated to Michelangelo Buonarrotti and Leonardo Da Vinci. Gigi Stecca‘s project was to create a room on the two airplanes, reserved for boys and elderly people who never went aboard. For ten years he had worked as a manager in two homes for elderly people. He remember that many old men, when they saw an airplane in the sky, told him they would have liked to go aboard.
