Few architects have been as influential as Andrea Palladio, whose ideas are embodied in stately buildings across Europe and America. In this fusion of travelogue, architectural guide and historical biography, the acclaimed architectural commentator Witold Rybczynski journeys along the Brenta River in northern Italy to visit Palladio’s surviving villas, and discovers how a rustic stonemason became the most sophisticated architect of the Renaissance.
