Andrea Palladio

Date of birth: 1508
Date of death: 1580
Main profession: architect
Links: Wikipedia (n/a)

Italian architect, whose surname (from Pallas) was bestowed on him by his benefactor, J. G. Trissino, and has in turn given its name to the Palladian style of architecture, based on the principles of antiquity as Palladio interpreted them in his buildings and in his Quattro libri dell'architettura, published in Venice in 1570. This was translated into English by Inigo Jones, who was a pupil and admirer of Palladio and imported his ideas into England, influencing both the theatre and public architecture there. Palladio designed the Teatro Olimpico, which was finished after his death by his pupil Scamozzi.
