Description: Basel: Birkhaeuser, 2011. 30cm., hardcover, 160pp., 150 color illus. English text. Summary: This book documents and analyzes ten of Palladio’s eighteen surviving villas specifically in terms of their relationship with their natural surroundings; their influence on those surroundings is investigated as well. The selected villas constitute a representative cross section of Palladio’s wide-ranging output. The landscape formations of Veneto, where these villas are located, may be divided into three types: plains surrounded by mountains, arid plains, and marshland.
