#trevisobellunotourism Your gentle journey around the Palladian heritage

31/10/2019 | Spotlight | 

Born Andrea di Pietro della Gondola, Palladio is one of the greatest Italian Renaissance architects of the 16th century working in the Veneto region of northeastern Italy. He spent his working life in a relatively contained landscape between Padua and Venice. Palladio had a profound influence on European architecture from the 17th century, his treaties I Quattro libri dell’architettura were known all over the world, giving life to the movement that carries the name of the architect, the Palladianism.

 

In the United States architects such as Thomas Jefferson were influenced by Palladio’s works and ideas and the Neo-Palladianism remained the prevailing style for public buildings until the early 1900’s. If you ever travel to Treviso you will find Villa Emo a Fanzolo di Vedelago and Villa Barbaro a Maser that are both included in the UNESCO World Heritage list.

 

Palladio died in 1580 in Maser although the precise day is not certain.  The circumstances of Palladio’s death remain unknown.
