Ristorante Aeolia - Longare
In the beginning of the restaurant Æolia , the downstairs portion was a horse stable while the upstairs was a stop-over between the two adjacent Villas of Costozza - Villa Da Schio and Villa Trento-Carli. Like the lobby of a large hotel, guests would arrive in carriages and be greeted and escorted upstairs in the Aeolia Hall for refreshment while the horses were cared for below. The name "Æolia" comes from the Greek mythological "God of the Wind", Eolo. The cellar at the Æolia (known as the "Jail of the Wind") is decorated with many frescoes dedicated to Eolo. The cellar is the fulcrum of the Æolia . It is connected with underground tunnels, hundreds of meters long, which carry the air at a year-round temperature of 10-14 degrees Celsius. At the entrance to the cellar, an inscription is carved: "ÆOLUS HIC CLAUSO VENTORUM CARCERE REGNAT ÆOLIA" Eolo, King of the Wind is closed in this prison and will reign.) In fact, if you open the main door of the cellar, the wind will escape! Many famous guests have sojourned at the Æolia over the years Galileo Galilei, Andrea Palladio, Orazio Marinali.
