THE PALLADIAN VILLAS IN THE CITY OF VICENZA by Amanda Fulginiti

A total of 26 individual buildings or parts of buildings are known to have been designed or reconstructed by Palladio or attributed to him and make up the World Heritage site – 23 in the city itself and three villas in its immediate environs. One example of his work is Villa Pisani whose 114 rooms once hosted doges, kings and emperors and is now a national museum which conserves eighteenth and nineteenth century works of art, like Gianbattista Tiepolo’s masterpiece, The Glory of the Pisani family, a fresco on the ceiling of the ballroom.
