Vicenza, Palladio's Legacy

Vicenza and the surrounding province feature ancient history and traditions that are closely tied to the name Andrea Palladio, the architect whose genius influenced architectonic tastes and tendencies throughout the entire world. This territory, abounding with villas, palaces and gorgeous countryside, inspired the greatest writers in 1900s Italy, and enchanted authors from other continents, especially Jorge Luis Borges, who was said to have been left breathless when he saw the marvelous Teatro Olimpico.
