Through the Palladio Museum the experts in the Palladio Study Centre illustrate their research and studies to a wider public as their work progresses, usually but not always focused on Andrea Palladio. The Palladio Museum’s mission is to explore the origins of themes and concepts also found in the architecture of today by describing and discussing them with a view to creating a cultural platform for the architecture of tomorrow.
