Vicenza and Palladio: an inseparable pair, because the former doesn't exist without the latter, and the latter, although he worked in other provinces too, left the biggest concentration of his wonderful masterpieces in this territory.

Today Vicenza is, in fact, one of Italy's cities with the highest number of monumental complexes compared to its extension. This makes it a real unexpected jewel to those visitors who take a walk in the old town centre.
A great part of the architectural works by Palladio was created in the Vicenza territory, starting from 1540. The architect worked without distinction both for private and public clients, thus helping to profoundly change the city's aspect.

 The works of Palladio have left such a profound mark in our Province that it has become an artistic reference point as well as cultural. The outstanding relation between the villas and the countryside in the Vicentino area as well as the buildings in the city and the country villas in the Vicenza Province reveal therefore , a characteristic of unity, sealed with its inscription in the World Heritage List of the UNESCO.

 

The city of Vicenza and the villas of Palladio in the Veneto Region have been inscribed to the Unesco World Heritage List in 1994 and 1996.
The works of Andrea Palladio was imitated all over the world. No less than 16 of the 23 villas designed by this great architect are found in the Vicenza territory.
