Odeo Cornaro

Padua; via Melchiorre Cesarotti, 21

The Odeo Cornaro was built, c. 1530, by Alvise Cornaro (B-26) in the courtyard of his Padua residence. The structure, with an octagonal room at its center for chamber music performances, was based on drawings by Cornaro himself and possibly by his protegé Giovanni Maria Falconetto (then deceased) as well.

The Odeo shares the courtyard with the earlier Loggia Cornaro, to which it is connected by a two-arch wall with a walkway on top.
