Quì si iscrisse nella fraglia dei muratori e scarpellini era probabilmente il 1524. Fu garzone presso Giovanni da Porlezza e Gerolamo Pittoni. Di carattere timido e modesto nel 1537 era ancora impiegato, presso il Trissino, come manovale a villa Cricoli. L'ambiente padovano, l'opera del Falconetto prima e del Serlio poi gli consentirono di farsi aprezzare nella sua prima opera villa Godi a Lonedo -iniziata nel 1540.
Nella sua opera si rinnovano gli elementi della architettura classica. Ritmi, accoppiamenti, sviluppi e proporzioni sono rinnovati con una libertà, un senso di equilibrio e di serenità nella composizione che persegue un grande ideale di vita civile.
Recently I purchased a book recently published on Leonardo's drawings. I thought I recognised in some of Leonardo's architectural drawings of churches some of the latter motifs that show up with Palladio's drawings. I know Leonardo made at least two trips to Venice that we are aware of and perhaps something of Leonardo's influence had an impact latter on with Palladio?

The first question would be, how could the mason's son have seen Leonardo's notebooks?--Wetman 09:05, 16 December 2006 (UTC)
The second question, which drawings? They should be dateable and if so, you can put them in context of his visits to Venice. On the other hand, his polyvalence makes it possible ideas at any time could have passed outwards. The obvious common link, Michaelangelo, is belied by the latter's rejection of Leonardo's values: his Capitoline buildings, which one would surely have expected to show some such influence, lacks it completely.
It might be worth mentioning Rudolph Wittkower's views on musical proportion in Palladio's work. I know they're now somewhat questioned, but the viewpoint that music was one of the quadrivium subjects (alongside mathematics, geometry and cosmology) in the academic norm of the day means that this influence was more pervasive at the time than we understand - their world was not as neatly compartmentalised as ours is, so the question, "What's music got to do with it?" which would be rhetorical to us would have had the answer "a lot" in Palladio's day. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 07:45, 23 July 2010 (UTC)
