Villa Pojana

In this chapter we discuss one of the most precious gems of the lower Vicenza area, made by the architect Andrea Palladio, the Villa Pojana.

Villa Pojana - Palladian Villas

Villa Pojana is another incredible work by the architect Andrea Palladio, who designed this villa around 1546, in Pojana Maggiore, in the province of Vicenza. The work was commissioned by Bonifacio Poiana, representative of a family FROM Vicenza who, thanks to the service rendered to the Republic of Venice during the War of the League of Cambrai, became the owner of vast lands.

Villa Pojana

The villa is one of the most popular villas of Palladio, it is simple, raised on a base and practically lacking in architectural elements in stone, like capitals, probably to contain costs. The main floor on the inside is dominated by a large hall decorated by the sculptor Bartolomeo Ridolfi and by painters Bernardino India and Anselmo Canera, who seems to remember the thermal baths of ancient Rome.
