Palazzo Chiericati, 1550-57

Still in Vincenza, Palladio's Palazzo Chiericati should be noted for:
- its public/private relationship
- the open loggia and portico done in a classical style
- classicaly treated Doric and Ionic orders, superimposed
- expert handling of corners and note the cluster of Doric columns which seem to thrust the exterior forward
- 3 bay wings on each side, with a triumphal arch
- alternating pediments, with sculptural decor
- terminating point statues
- metope triglyph frieze
