The architectural design of Andrea Palladio, thanks to his followers, gave its name to a style – the Palladian style, that adheres to the principles of classical Roman. Among his disciples, Vincenzo Scamozzi which, in the homeland, completed several works by the master. The Palladian style was successful until the nineteenth century. The architecture of Palladio soon became famous not only in Italy but throughout Europe. Andrea Palladio was recognized as the forerunner of the neo-classical and, with his style, he inspired english architects, as Inigo Jones and Christopher Wren. Another of his famous admirer was the architect Richard Boyle, known as Lord Burlington which – with William Kent – designed Chiswick House. The White House in Washington, residence of the President of the United States of America, is designed in the Palladian style.
