This episode gives viewers a glimpse into the rich history of the city. Walk in the footsteps of Galileo at the University of Padova, one of the oldest universities in the world, founded in 1222. See how young people, arriving in Padova from across Italy to attend the university, add to the vibrance of the city’s atmosphere. 

Tour the 18th-century Venetian villa the Church of Scientology transformed into its new home, dedicated in 2012 by Scientology ecclesiastical leader Mr. David Miscavige. See how the Church restored this treasured landmark to its former glory. But as stunning as the result of this restoration is, the real beauty of the Church lies in its help to its parishioners, other religions, and the community as a whole. As the city’s councilor for culture says, the Church of Scientology “gives a soul and a magical aura to our city.”
