Andrea Palladio (Padua 1508-Vicenza 1580), Italian architect of the late Renaissance period published L'Antichit di Roma (1554). Between 1560 and 1580 he constructed several churches in Venice.including the churches of San Francesco della Vigna, San Giorgio Maggiore and Il Redentore. His last great work was the theatre in Vicenza for the Academia Olimpica. Palladio cultivated his own interpretation of Roman motifs, and combined many of the elements of the classical style. However, he shared in the Renaissance quest for harmonic proportions. Palladio was the first architect to systematize the layout of the private rooms of a house, and the first to use the ancient Greco-Roman temple front as a portico on residential buildings.

More About Andrea Palladio, Aurora Cuito, Francisco Asensio Cerver, Llorenc Bonet & Pino Guidolotti
Pino Guidolotti was born in Verona in 1947. In the early 1970s he attended a set design course at the Fine Arts Academy of Bologna. His acquaintances and friends from that time turned out to be of fundamental importance for his future development as a photographer: Paolo Monti (to whom he became an assistant), Romeo Martinez in Paris, and Ernst Gombrich in London. Guidolotti's photography features subjects as varied as fashion, portraiture, sculpture, and architecture, and he has been published in major international magazines. He has also illustrated art books such as A. Rosenauer's, "Donatello. L'opera completa" (Milan 1993) and R. Wittkower's, "Bernini" (Milan 1990, London 1997). Born in Cicenza in 1961, Guido Beltramini is the director of the Centro Internazionale de Studi di Architettura "Andrea Palladio," Vicenza, and a professor at the University of Ferrara. He has edited several works: a catalogue of drawings by the 18th-century Palladio follower Ottone Calderari (Venice 1999), the catalogue for the exhibitions on Carlo Scarpa (Milan 2000), with Kurt Foster and Paola Marini, and the special issue of the Quaderni della Scuola Superiore de Pisa dedicated to digital models in architectural studies (Pisa 2000) with Marco Gaiani. Together with Howard Burns and Marco Gaiani, he has also devised and made several CD-ROMS: "Le fabbriche e i disegni di Andrea Palladio" (1996), "Andrea Palladio. Le ville" (1997), "Palladio and the Veneto" (1999), and "Palladio e Vicenza" (2001).
