Photographer's Note

In the project for the Villa Pisani, Palladio’s objective was an ambitious one: to realise a country residence catering to the refined tastes of the Pisani brothers and at the same time capable of providing a concrete, rational and organising focus for the entire complex of agricultural annexes. In fact, Palladio succeeded in inserting the manorial block, stables, barchesse and dovecotes all within a unified design. That is, he disposed all the elements which in the Quattrocento villa had faced the farmyard in a casual arrangement devoid of functional and formal hierarchies.
At the same time, he translated the practical necessities of agricultural life into innovatory forms, articulated in a language inspired by ancient architecture. Like a Roman temple, the villa rises on a high basement, which emphasises the building and conceals the service areas.
