Notes:
The architectural design of Andrea Palladio, thanks to his followers, gave its name to a style – the Palladian style, that adheres to the principles of Classical Roman. Among his disciples, Vincenzo Scamozzi which, in the homeland, completed several works by the master. The Palladian style was successful until the nineteenth century. The architecture of Palladio soon became famous not only in Italy but throughout Europe. Andrea Palladio was recognized as the forerunner of the neoclassical and, with his style, he inspired English architects, as Inigo Jones and Christopher Wren. Another of his famous admirer was the architect Richard Boyle, known as Lord Burlington which – with William Kent – designed Chiswick House. The White House in Washington, residence of the President of the United States of America, is designed in the Palladian style.

Andrea Palladio, nicknamed Andrea di Pietro della Gondola (Padua, November 30, 1508 - Maser, August 19, 1580), was an architect, theoretician of the Italian Renaissance architect and set designer, a citizen of the Republic of Venice. Influenced by Greek-Roman architecture, first of all by Vitruvio, it is considered one of the most influential personalities in the history of Western architecture.

He was the most important architect of the Republic of Venice, in whose territory he designed many villas that made him famous, as well as churches and palaces, mostly Vicenza, where he formed and lived. He published the treatise The Four Books of Architecture (1570) through which his models had a profound influence on Western architecture; The imitation of his style gave rise to a movement destined to last for three centuries, Palladianism, which recalls the classical-Roman principles. The city of Vicenza and the Palladian villas of Veneto are one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
