Girolamo Forni was another of mine - not many to tell the truth - bourgeois clients. Like the notary Cogollo for example, for whom I had studied a similar solution on the facade.

He supplied wood to many of my sites, such as that of Palazzo Chiericati, and had grown rich. He was an entrepreneur who painted himself, who collected antiques. Often sharing ideas on construction sites and at lunch, together with their mutual friend Alessandro Vittoria, the sculptor, and several others.


Together with Antonio Fasolo and Giovanni Battista Maganza we were among the first members of the Olympic Academy. It wasn't just about work: we had a common vision, a vision that we were realizing together.


So it was that out of friendship I redesigned, what little needed, his house in a cottage.
