We are so pleased to welcome Dr. Bruce Pitts this week, who joins us to report about his recent trip to the Palladio Museum in Vicenza, Italy. He interviewed the director of the museum, Doctor Beltramini, about connections between Thomas Jefferson and Andrea Palladio and how Jefferson was influenced by Palladio in his own architectural work. Palladio is widely considered to be the most influential individual in the history of architecture.
Photographs courtesy Dr. Bruce Pitts except where noted.
Have any comments or questions about today's show? Given the opportunity, would you live in a Palladian home? Why do you think Jefferson never visited Vicenza?
Let us know by leaving a note below.
