Description: Milano: Electa, 2011. 24cm., pbk., 80pp. illus. Italian text. Summary: Edited by the historian Donata Battilotti, this book leads readers to the knowledge and understanding of the work of Andrea Palladio (1508-1580), one of the leading interpreters of the Renaissance architectural culture and the architect who had the broadest influence in Europe and all over the world. His principal works are as many models for civil architecture, as shown by the Basilica and Teatro Olimpico in Vicenza, for the field of religious architecture, of which the Venetian churches of San Giorgio Maggiore and Il Redentore are the most famous results, and finally for the field of private building, which Palladio illustrated with his many villas in Veneto and mansions such as those of Porto and Chiericati in Vicenza.
