Andrea Palladio Feb 21, 2017
Andrea Palladio (his real surname is unknown) was born in 1508 in Padua and died in 1580. As a child he worked as an apprentice for a local stonecutter. In 1524 he moved to Vicenza where he met Gian Giorgio Trissino; a nobleman and an architect. Count Trissino tutored him and gave him the name Palladio, that comes from the Greek god Pallae Athena.

Palladio found inspiration for its country houses, urban palaces and churches in the architecture of ancient Greece and Rome.

There are around 23 buildings by Palladio in Vicenza and surrounding areas.
