Not my villa, of course, but the place where my life changed.

I was working on an extraordinary construction site for me, that of the villa of Giangiorgio Trissino, who wanted to transform it into the Roman fashion of Raphael and the ancients; I, still a stonemason, was increasingly involved in architecture for the Pedemuro workshop, the most renowned construction company in Vicenza that had contracted out the work.


Thus came the meeting that marked my destiny: I recognized the mentor I needed, he the interpreter of his great project for Vicenza.
