Energitismo Insight

Villa Almerico Capra called La Rotonda is a Venetian villa with a symmetric plan built near the city of Vicenza, on a slight deviation from the Riviera Berica road. It was built by Paul Almerico, who commissioned Andrea Palladio for design from1566. La Rotonda, as it became known later, is one of the most famous and imitated buildings of architectural history in the modern era and, no doubt, is the most famous villa of Palladio and, perhaps, of all the Veneto villas. It has been inserted in the World Heritage List by UNESCO.
