Summary
In the second half of the 16th century, the countryside around Venice witnessed the arrival of a totally new type of housing, a cross between farmhouse and palazzo, called the villa. When creating villas, Andrea Palladio brought together grand architecture with habitation and daily usage in trying to marry beauty with utility. Around 1560 in Maser, the Barbaro brothers asked Andrea Palladio to build a country house and the painter Paolo Veronese to decorate the walls. In front of the rationalist work of Palladio, the Veronése frescoes which decorate the villa Barbaro are a type of illusion, opening imaginary doors and windows everywhere and inserting a dialog between real architecture and painted architecture. The Villa Rotonda is the most famous of all Palladio's villas and for some critics it is the most beautiful home ever built in the West
