Villa Foscari "La Malcontenta"

Andrea Palladio, 1559—60


Built for the Foscari brothers, it is situated next to the Brenta Canal, near Venice.


"If one may build upon a river, it will be both convenient and beautiful… it will afford a beautiful prospect, with which the estates, pleasure and kitchen gardens may with great utility and ornament be watered, which are the sole and chief recreation of a villa."

— Andrea Palladio. The Four Books of Architecture: Second Book, Chapter XII.
