Loggia CornaroPadua; via Melchiorre Cesarotti, 21
The Loggia was designed by another equally famous protegé of Cornaro, Giovanni Maria Falconetto. Tavernor (Palladio and Palladianism, pp. 22-3) describes the structure as "the first rigorously all'antica building in the Veneto."
The second story of the structure was added when the adjacent Odeo Cornaro, connected to the Loggia by a two-arch wall with a walkway on top, was constructed c. 1530.
