Columns - Gazebos

 

GREEK AND ROMAN COLUMNS The past architecture arrived to us with the columns of famous ancient temples once located in ancient Greece and Rome. Historically, the Doric columns were the first ones to be used and, consequently, they can be considered the most antique ones. After the Doric columns, the Ionic and the Corinth columns made their appearance. These columns represent styles that, nowadays, still preserve their value and, for centuries, they have been reminding us of ancient people and societies as well as their glorious cities.

OUTDOOR GAZEBOS When a garden is big enough, part of it can be used as a circumscribed meeting-place. A "carved Vicenza stone Rotonda", better known with the name of "gazebo", creates a small area where people can relax or enjoy an outdoor lunch or simply they can spend some time looking at the nature all around them from a new point of view.

Garden gazebos made of "Vicenza stone" can have columns in Doric, Ionic or Corinth style; in the middle of it, a round table made of stone can be placed together with some benches made of stone artistically carved.

THE CIVILIZATION OF VILLA

Between the XV and the XVIII century the Villa was the same as a country residence, inhabited between the end of spring and the beginning of autumn by the urban classes; mostly noblemen, for the sake of a change, rest and especially for the direct control of farming activities and land profits.

In Venetia, these ways of life integrated with the buildings.  They are seen as an expression of true and real "civilization", because they have faithfully represented the variations in artistic culture, economic points of junction, social relations and government interests over the territory.  Consequently, history and the use of spaces blend into a unison.
