Palladian Basilica
The Palladian Basilica is the symbolic building of Vicenza. Characteristic for the sergeant loggia, which surrounds the medieval Palazzo della Ragione, that is, a structure consisting of a constant light arch along with two rectangular, architraved lateral openings, of varying width and therefore able to absorb the differences in the amplitude of the fields . The operation is evident in corner arches, where architraved openings are reduced to almost zero, but it is present in all the spans, whose width varies, albeit with little. Designed by the great architect Andrea Palladio, it was inserted by Unesco in the list of heritage assets of humanity in 1994.
Between 2007 and 2012, the Basilica was the subject of a complex and articulated intervention of architectural, functional and plant restoration thanks to the fundamental contribution of the Cassa di Risparmio Foundation of Verona Vicenza Belluno and Ancona. It was reopened on October 5, 2012 in conjunction with the inauguration of the great exhibition "Raffaello towards Picasso. Stories of looks, faces and figures".

Ciao Silvio

A classic and classy picture of this magnificent building in a fine composition. Congratulations.


Hi Silvio,

The presence of the people has an effect of scale. The point of view is allowing me to admire the details of the architecture if the basilica. There is a good contrast between the colors of the picture. Have a nice day.


Hello Silvio,
Splendid perspective along this beautiful arcade. Perfectly composed with superb colours and clarity. Good management of the verticals.

Wonderful whole view from excellent POV onto the beautiful arcade of the basilica, Silvio.
The returning pattern of the many arches and pillars are most attractive, also notable the statues on left.
People gave excellent scale upon the big piazza and edifice.
Buona serata,

Ciao Silvio ,
A superb perspective on the impressive white facade .

Namaste Silvio,

Excellent side view of this beautiful architecture with great composition and color, I like your shooting position, well done.

my warm regards,


Ciao caro Silvio,

A wonderful example of linear perspective with details that are pin-sharp.
I like your composition, the red brick wall giving a strong f/g focus, whilst the continuation of the building, in the shape of arches and pillars, nicely follows the rules of photography.

My warm regards,
Bev :-)

Ciao Silvio,
I like the way you composed this photo, with the brick facade on the far left, and then the lovely row of double arches. The architecture is beautiful, and I like all the small statues, too. With some people walking by, it's a lively and attractive view.

Witaj Silvio!
Interesting building.
Good frame and perspective.
I like colors and sharpness.
Well done.
Good night.

Ciao Silvio
Brescia ha molte cose belle, ma questa credo sia la più bella in assoluto. Bellissima la ripetizione degli archi e delle colonne, splendidi i parapetti e a completare l'opera le belle statue.
Ottimo punto di ripresa, sei riuscito a farci entrare tutto e con eccellente qualità.

Hello Silvio,
Good photo of this basilica, the many arches and columns make a very nice repetition and perspective in this photo. The brick part on the left hand side was well included too. The people strolling around added a fine and calm mood.

Hello Silvio
Splendid picture of the Basilica palladiana. I great example of the Renaissance architecture of Palladio, but a buiding with an even older history.
Beautiful work, Have a nice day. Groet Rob

excellent angle catching the façade and the repetition of arches. I liked the way you included the adornments in the base of the tower. TFS. very beautiful.



Hi Silvio
Thanks to brief notes, a lovely solid and beautiful architectural shape, interesting light and colour intensity along with superb contrast lending this to a majestic impression. The people give this a beautiful effect and sense of scale. Super shot, Congrats
Best regards.

Hi Silvio
fine shot here with the long perspective lines creating lots and lots of depth, i like these types of scenes.
and i'm glad you included in the red brick on the left for color contrast as most of the other parts are the one color.
lovely shot, well composed. cheers

Hello Silvio,
The same beautiful building from a different angle presents quite a distinct mood with colder colors. But is is just as beautiful.
