Vincenzo Scamozzi Venetian Architect Book III : Villas and Country Estates

The Idea of a Universal Architecture
The northern Italian architect, Vincenzo Scamozzi, (1548-1616) designed a number of important palaces, villas and churches in and around Vicenza, Padua and Venice. In addition, he completed a comprehensive study of ancient classical architecture, including the possibilities for its application in a modern context. The first edition of the book was published in 1615. Scamozzi distinguishes himself from his predecessors Palladio and Vitruvius by the scientific approach he follows in his treatise, in which his own designs appear as examples. His book led to a wide popularity in the Dutch Golden Age and was translated into Dutch in the mid 17th century. The current project comprises separate English and Dutch translations of the books III and VI.
