Palazzo da Monte
Close view of the Serliano window, looking up; The entrance portal, underlined by rusticated ashlars which brusquely interrupt the smooth surface of the wall is contrasted on the piano nobile by an elegant "serliana" - the typical window much used by and named after the architect, Sebastiano Serlio - consisting of an arch flanked by short architraves. The building was very probably planned by the young Palladio, though it was carried out by others in 1581, after the architect's death, as an inscription on the string-course shows.
