An impressive architectural feature whose origins have been lost in time, porticos mark an area by a temple or building with a column-supported roof. Generally open on three sides, they were heavily stylised by the Greeks and Romans, for whom they had great symbolic value.

During the Renaissance, the Venetian architect Andrea Palladio revitalised porticos for the modern period and everyday life via his famous villas, whose façades not only incorporated Vitruvian harmony but also much of this element’s primordial significance.

This magazine is a metaphor of the “Palladian” portico, transposed to this century and our own lives. From this Portico, we perceive what’s inside, inviting us to discover the cosmopolitan world of Vanguard Properties. The doors of this Portico are always open, offering everyone a warm welcome. This is a place to share, to make a connection, and to find new perspectives on our surroundings.
