Palazzo Iseppo Porto

According to Beltramini, the Palazzo Iseppo Porto “[f]ully illustrates the extent of Palladio’s development after his stay in Rome in 1541 and his knowledge of both antique and contemporary architecture” — though the model is an interpretation of Bramante’s model of Palazzo Caprini, Palladio also recognized the Venetian tradition of living on the first floor and thus made sure the ground floor was raised to an appropriate level. (Beltramini, p. 26)
