We were born
and grew up with them
Vicenza is the city where art becomes a craft. Where the aesthetic sense of beauty becomes design, through its reproducibility. Creativity and entrepreneurship. Intuition and skills. Vicenza is this, and it is our daily source of inspiration.
However Vicenza, as well as many other Italian cities, can be considered one of the capitals of beauty. In the streets of the town centre and in the great villas that surround it the trait of Andrea Palladio can be read clearly and unforgettably. The great architect born in Padua in 1508 lived and worked mainly in Vicenza, where he designed the most significant buildings of the city. With his work, like for example Villa Capra, La Rotonda, he influenced deeply all western architecture for the following three centuries. The White House, home of the US President, in designed in Palladian style and so is the Thomas Jeffersonís residence in Monticello. In 2010 the Congress of the United States recognised Palladio as the “father of American architecture”.
