Since 6 September 2021, the Municipality of Vicenza is officially the owner of Palazzo Thiene, an original example of Renaissance architecture, conceived by Giulio Romano and built approximately between 1542 and 1558 by Andrea Palladio, who also took care of the executive design.
It has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1994 and has been recognized as being of exceptional cultural interest since 2016.
