 Villa History
Rome had more than its share of villas with easy reach of the small 16th century city:Villa Madama, the design of which, attributed to Raphael, was carried out by Giulio Romano in 1520, was one of the most influential private houses ever built; elements derived from Villa Madama appeared in villas through the 19th century.
In the 19th century villa was extended to describe any suburban house that was free-standing in a landscaped plot of ground, as opposed to a 'terrace' of joined houses.
By the time 'semi-detached villas' were being erected at the turn of the 20th century, the term collapsed under its extension and overuse.

Built in 1570 for the prelate Paolo Almerico, "La Rotonda" (officially "Villa Capra") is probably the most famous Villa of Andrea Palladio (1508/1580).
La Rotonda differentiates in the scenery of the venetian villas of the latter half of the '500: it's a suburban mansion, refined meeting point for the aristocratic of Vicenza, place of amusement and "literary idleness".
Only Capra family, that acquired it in the 1591, ordered to Vincenzo Scamozzi the adjacent buildings assigned to the agricultural life.

 Villa La Rotonda   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Tipologically it differs from the other Palladio's buildings: in fact, it hasn't a longitudinal plane and it is also the only crowned by a cupola (that in the original map appeared hemispherical and more emergent).
In the villa designed for the prelate, Palladio introduces, thus, formal elements assigned to suggest a significance of sacredness.
Palladio probably was ispired by the roman Pantheon, then named "Rotonda", resuming the classical theme of the "sacred space" that comes from the contamination between the different formal models of the circle and of the quadrate, of the cube and of the sphere.

 Palladian Villas of the Veneto - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The City centre of Vicenza and the Palladian Villas of the Veneto are a cluster of works by Andrea Palladio and his disciples which were inscribed on the World Heritage List in 1994 and expanded two years later.
The term villa was always used to describe the country house distinguishing them from the family Palazzo which was usually in town.
In most cases the family coupled their surname with the Palazzo or Villa title, hence confusingly there is both a Villa and a Palazzo Chiericati, just as their is a Palazzo Foscari in Venice and a Villa Foscari in the [1] in the Veneto.
