Villa Almerico Capra called La Rotonda (also known as Villa Capra Valmarana) is a Venetian villa with a central layout located near the city of Vicenza, not far from the road of the Riviera Berica. Built by Paolo Almerico, who commissioned it from Andrea Palladio in 1566-1567, it was completed by Vincenzo Scamozzi in 1605 for the two Capra brothers, who had acquired the building in 1591.
La Rotonda, as it later became known, is one of the most famous and imitated buildings in the history of modern architecture; it is undoubtedly the most famous villa of Palladio and, probably, of all the Venetian villas. It is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites since 1994.
Located in Piazza Castello in the heart of the historic center of Vicenza, a stone’s throw from our Relais Santa Corona, the tower has undergone recent restoration work and will host temporary contemporary art exhibitions. The first exhibition, which will present a series of unpublished works, including paintings and drawings by Neo Rauch and Rosa Loy, specially designed for the Torrione spaces, represents the possibility of approaching the work of two key figures in the international painting scene of the last decades. Their experience is strongly linked to the city of Leipzig, where, from the beginning of the twentieth century until the 2000s, a figurative language was formed which formed an important school of painting (the Leipzig school, in fact) that involved several generations of German artists. The current exhibition will end on 08/31/19.
