VENICE ARCHITECTURE BIENNALE 2016

59 Significantly, in line with the pattern that we find repeated so often in Venetian architectural history, it was the religious institutions rather than the organs of State or the nobility that proved most willing to accept Palladio’s bold innovations. ROMAN RENAISSANCE 191 Andrea Palladio was born in Padua and spent most of his working life in the Veneto. From the late J530S onwards he was erecting magnificent buildings in and around Vicenza. His Vicentine palaces and Veneto villas were greatly admired, but although he had influential Venetian patrons on the terraferma, the conservative Venetian establishment long resisted the idea of seeing such pioneering architecture in their own city. Jacopo Sansovino had ensured his success in the very special context of Venice by incorporating many aspects of the Venetian architectural tradition into his own style. But Palladio adopted a less compromising approach. In a sense it is more surprising that so small and provincial a town as Vicenza was prepared to accept buildings designed according to such fundamentally new principles, than that the city of Venice viewed Palladio’s innovations with suspicion. After the death of the little known Zuan Antonio Rosso in 1554, Palladio was one of those who applied to succeed him in the position of proto to the Salt Office that is, the architect responsible for the public buildings of the city, especially the Palazzo Ducale. Yet his application was unsuccessful, and instead the insignificant Pietro de’ Guberni was appointed to the post.
