“Andrea Palladio,” writes Prof. Bruce Boucher in his book Andrea Palladio: The Architect in His Time “is arguably the most influential architect the western world has ever produced.” The institute is pleased to offer a tour of 26 of the great architect’s villas and palazzos that will transport the participants directly to the work of this genius.
Our guide will be Laura Leonardi, who is a trained expert for the Centro Internazionale di Studi di Architettura Andrea Palladio on the architecture, art and cultural history as they pertain to Palladio. She has attended the Universita di Trieste, the University of Essex (UK) and the Universita La Sapienza di Roma.
We will be entertained at private functions, and throughout the tour will be provided with four-star accommodations in Vicenza.
