Andrea Palladio Discover Palladio's influence on architecture in Britain, the Veneto and beyond.


Over 500 years since his birth, Palladio's impact on architecture is still apparent and can be felt far from his birthplace in the Veneto. Today, most of his drawings are held by the RIBA and his enduring influence can be seen in buildings across Europe and America. These two online exhibitions look at his life, achievements and legacy.
