Villa Caldogno

Villa Caldogno was designed by Palladio in the early 1540s for the noblemen Losco Caldogno, from Vicenza.
Like all the villas designed by Palladio in the first stage of his career, Villa Caldogno has no columns, but the design of its exterior was a great innovation for the age.
A guided tour of Villa Caldogno features its climax in the basement, where the original hydraulic system was only discovered recently during some preservation work.
