Within the book, The Villa Form and Ideology of Country Houses, James Ackerman explains what Palladio believes the villa had to offer to Paolo Almerico and his guests, “ The site is one of the most pleasant and delightful that one could find because it is at the top of a little hill with an easy ascent and is bathed on one side by the Bacchiglione, a navigable river, and on the other is surrounded by other most agreeable hills which give the aspect of a great theatre: and all are cultivated and abound in most excellent fruits and the best vines. Thus, because it enjoys beautiful views on every side, some of which are limited, others more distant, and still others that reach the horizon, loggias have been made on all four sides.” Being a majestic villa of its own, Villa Rotonda has become one of the most recognizable villas of the Renaissance.
