Andrea Palladio (1508-1580) may well be the single most influential architect ever, and by conspicuously adopting his vocabulary, Michael Graves, Philip Johnson and the post-modernists have made him a byword for the 1980s and 1990s.

This book contains photographs and text which disclose some of Palladio’s elegant country houses, located in the north of Italy. Foreword by Renato Cevese. Introduction by Michael Graves. Afterword by Gian Antonio Golin.
