Vicenza, the city of Palladio

Vicenza, the city of Palladio, the city with the highest concentration of the artist’s most admirable works, and the city where the tangible signs of his brilliance have been left behind more so than any other artist.
A true gem, unexpectedly revealing its beauty before the eyes of those who take a walk through its historical city centre, desired and created by Palladio, who from 1540 until the day of his death designed striking public buildings, changing the appearance of Vicenza and its Province.

The Palladian villas of Vicenza, some of which are famous all throughout the world, are a symbol of the civilisation and sophistication of his era, as well as an immortal testament to his brilliance.
In December of 1994, Vicenza, an open-air museum dedicated to the great artist, was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List.

In Goethe’s “Italian Journey”, he describes the city of Vicenza as the “summa” of Palladian works, whilst Courajod defined it as “a place blessed by the sky, one of those nests prepared by nature for the birth of Italian art, which, for the prince of the Renaissance, did not fail to blossom”.
“Palladianism”, a unique style deriving its name from the artist, has rendered this city a sacred treasure chest preserving its very art and architectural ideals, far from oblivion and time.
