For those who enjoy paintings of elaborate architecture, the Civic Museums of Bassano del Grappa are opening their latest exhibition on 29th May 2021 entitled Palladio and the Bridge: Explaining the Myth. The show will explore the many curious designs the architect Andrea Palladio (1508-1580) made of bridges and the architectural imaginations of artists who responded to them. This includes the likes of Canaletto who featured them in several works (pictured). It was inspired by the recent restoration of the Ponte Vecchio in Bassano del Grappa, an ancient wooden bridge reconstructed many times after the architect's sixteenth-century designs.

The exhibition will run until 10th October 2021.
