Vicenza: 9/29/12

Villa Rotunda, Andrea Palladio

You can’t visit Vicenza without setting your eyes on one of Palladio’s work. Villa Rotunda was a work of symmetrical art at its finest, being one of the most copied works in architecture. Every side looked like the next, the only way i could tell the difference was through the surrounding landscape. For 10euros I expected a bit more of an opportunity to visit the in’s and out’s, but not here. It’s stature is so important they scare visitors away with the price just to keep people out. Its design was impeccable, simple, and yet quite technical for its time.
