Andrea Palladio

Thursday, May 7, 2015
6:00 p.m. Reception, 7:00 p.m. Lecture

To many people, Andrea Palladio has become synonymous with Renaissance Classical architecture.  The stone-carver from Padua is also considered to be one of the most inventive architects of all time.  This lecture will explore the architecture of Pallasio in the Venetian context in which it developed.  How did the city of Venice shape Palladio, and to what extent did he in turn shape the city?  We will examine five of Palladio’s greatest architectural inventions found in his designs for villas and palaces throughout the Veneto.
