Dinner and Lecture
Gary Paul discusses Andrea Palladio’s work and his 450 years of influence on architecture in Europe and the US. Gary speaks from the heart, sharing personal photos and stories of his travel and exploration through Italy over the years, all while making a risotto to share with the audience.
Andrea Palladio’s work has been valued as the quintessence of High Renaissance calm and harmony. His reputation is based on his skill as a designer of villas, located in what was the Venetian Republic in northeastern Italy. Palladio’s teachings, summarized in the architectural treatise, The Four Books of Architecture, gained him recognition around the world.
An expert on Palladio, Gary has led many tours to study Palladio’s villas and public buildings; traversing the backroads of the Veneto from Mantua to Treviso, including Museum Palladio, the Canova Museum and to the walled towns Marostica, Sabbioneta and Asolo.
