Giovanni Giaconi: The architecture of Palladio

September 11, 2012 /

The base of every drawing is a precise study done with metric and photographic surveys. Several preparatory and preliminary drawings, first in india ink, later in water colors, precede the final drawings. These Facciates, without their landscape and natural environment, become the "skin" of architecture; revealing the shades, transparencies, nuances and "patina" of time passing by.

Giovanni Giaconi worked over a period of five years, recording the renovation of Landmark Buildings in New York, as the assistant to a well known architect from Vicenza. In his drawings he recorded with accuracy, and respect for the architecture, the history of each project; giving the building its memory and aura back.

Giaconi's interest in the Venetian architectural heritage has achieved results of great value; like the drawings of Ottavio Bertotti Scamozzi who, during the 18th century, drew all of Palladio's buildings.
