Vincenzo Scamozzi completes Palladio’s work on the Teatro Olimpico in Vicenza after Palladio’s death. His last project was the Tempietto in Villa Barbaro, Maser.


‘La Rotonda’, Paolo Allmerico’s villa. This project saw Palladio translating antique templar designs to civil architecture.


Palladio developed some ideas for the Rialto Bridge, which were never implemented.


The venetian Senate commission The Redentore Church was built on Giudecca island as a votive church to thank God for the deliverance of the city from a major outbreak of the plague.



Palladio is one of the founders of Vicenza’s Accademia Olimpica.


Villa Valmarana in Lisiera and Paolo Almerico Cappella in Vicenza’s Cathedral.


The Capitaniato’s Loggia in Vicenza. The complex project for the church in San Giorgio Maggiore’s monastery in Venice was approved. Construction began the following year.


Villa Godi’s construction work at Lonedo di Lugo Vicentino comes to an end. Palladio’s first large villa has an antiquated planimetry and it’s still similar to a traditional countryside palace in Veneto.His first project commissioned by the venetian nobility was Villa Pisani in Bagnolo. It was destined to become a prototype. Similarly to Raffaello’s Villa Madama in Rome, it stands on foundations that resemble a temple’s stylobate, which include the service areas. The main hall, A TUTTA ALTEZZA is covered by an arch shaped wall which is richly decorated and illuminated by a Diocletian window. It’s part of an antique floorplan, but it’s innovative in comparison to pre palladian main halls.



A likely trip to Rome to follow Trisino: Palladio comes face to face with ancient ruins for the first time.


Palazzo Civena in Vicenza is the first known palladian urban residential project.
