              Palladian Days: Finding a New Life in a Venetian Country House (Audio CD / Audio)

              By Gable, Sally; Read by Mazur, Kathe; With Gable, Carl I.

              Palladian Days is nothing short of wonderful-part adventure, mystery, history, diary, and even cookbook. The Gables' lively account captures the excitement of their acquisition and restoration of one of the greatest houses in Italy. Beguiled by Palladio and the town of Piombino D...ese, they trace the history of the Villa Cornaro and their absorption of Italian life. Bravo! -Susan R. Stein, Gilder Curator and Vice President of Museum Programs, Monticello In 1552, in the countryside outside Venice, the great Renaissance architect Andrea Palladio built Villa Cornaro. In 1989, Sally and Carl Gable became its bemused new owners. Called by Town & Country one of the ten most influential buildings in the world, the villa is the centerpiece of the Gables' enchanting journey into the life of a place that transformed their own. From the villa's history and its architectural pleasures, to the lives of its former inhabitants, to the charms of the little town that surrounds it, this loving account brings generosity, humor, and a sense of discovery to the story of small-town Italy and its larger national history. From the Trade Paperback edition.
