Palazzo Iseppo del Porto, 1549-52

Created as a new palace (as opposed to adding or remodelling) in Vincenza, Palladio is still working with the vocabulary of other architects (here Sanmicheli), but his ideas here will become standards in modern Renaissance structures. As Sanmicheli does, Palladio merges classical concepts with Northern Italian decor, signified here with the keystone heads, alternating pediments, and winged victories in the spandrels. Palladio installs proportion, solving the problem of the attic story by using pedestals and adding statues. The termination point incorporates the order.
