August 14, 2008–September 30, 2008
The year 2008 marks the 500th anniversary of the birth of Andrea Palladio (1508-1580). His extraordinary legacy of both built works and influence of his I QUATTRO LIBRI DELL'ARCHITETTURA is surely a cause for celebration.
The exhibition includes, drawn from the holdings of the Rare Book Room, various editions and versions of Palladio's treatise, including a copy, from the personal collection of former GSD Dean Josep Lluis Sert of the first edition (Venice, 1570) of I QUATTRI LIBRI.
