("La #Rotonda") - Vicenza, Italy. Original design by Andrea Palladio. After 1580, Scamozzi essentially completed the project by Palladio. This magnificent villa lies on top of a hill, where the Riviera Berica starts to take shape. Each façade is embellished with a classical portico that seems to push itself by centrifugal force to the surrounding landscape, the dome that dominates the building is a symbol of divine perfection in the Renaissance.
