Palladio symposium

“’I love architecture, but I also love chocolate. Like Josephine Baker, ‘j’ai deux amours,’ with the difference that I don’t sing about Paris but about Palladio,’ said Kurt Forster, the Vincent Scully visiting professor of architectural history.

“With these words, Forster began his keynote address on Friday evening during a two-day symposium on Andrea Palladio, who is considered the most influential architect in the history of Western architecture. ‘What Modern Times Have Made of Palladio,’ co-sponsored by the Yale School of Architecture and the Department of History of Art, examined the influence of Palladio, a Venetian, and his legacy over the last five centuries.”
