The Italianate Style, popularized in the USA by Andrew Jackson Davis through his books, in the 1840s, fused Classical and Palladian influences with the picturesque tendency of Victorian taste. It is characterized by symmetrical elements and relatively simple classical details combined in often informal, assymetrical arrangements. Colonnades, towers and bracketed cornices are also very popular features. This style lends itself readily to a wide variety of materials from stone to wood and even accepts wrought and cast iron elements with grace and charm.
