About

Alvise Cornaro (1484-1566) was born in Venice, but at the young age of fifteen he moved to Padua into the home of his uncle Don Alvise Angelieri. A few years after taking a degree, he found himself administering his uncle’s bountiful inheritance.
 
In the house in Via Bersaglio (today Via Cesarotti) which leads into Piazza del Santo, he created the first core of what would become one of the most prestigious architectural monuments of renaissance Veneto. With great artistic intuition and a remarkable spirit of patronage, he became the champion and protector of the arts, surrounding himself with the most illustrious personages of his time. The “court” of Alvise Cornaro was transformed into a center for theater and musical entertainments, and became the veritable heart of intellectual life and thought in Padua in the first half of the sixteenth century.
