Villa Pisani Bonetti

This villa in Bagnolo was built in 1542 by Palladio. This building is significant in Palladio's career because it reflects a turning point in several aspects. Fresh off a trip to Rome a year previous, Palladio architecture begins to reflect his idea of a residence. Yet, this design is far from the Villa that Palladio would go on to describe in The Four Books of Architecture. This building is significant in offering a reference point in the evolution of Palladio. Beyond architecture, this building demonstrates that Palladio is also beginning to attract a wealthy crowd for his services.
