The walls of Padua were commissioned by the Venetian Republic, and built under the supervision of Bartolomeo d’Alviano, a condottiero or mercenary soldier in the employ of the republic; the work, in phases, was carried out between about 1509 and 1535, with some sections designed by Giovanni Maria Falconetto. Large sections of the wall survive to the present time.
