I think there is a fundamental difference. The great works of the renaissance, like those three examples, were completely new and innovative works, inspired by classical antiquity yes, but radical in their modernity too.
Diachronicastically, my reading of Leon Battista Alberti, Sebastiano Serlio and Andrea Palladio is that all three understood what they were doing in terms of “reviving” the architecture of the ancients.
Synchronistically, they undoubtedly generated something quite innovative which may have been facilitated by the absence of any significant constructions dating from antiquity with the excetions of the Maison CarÃ©e at Nimes, the Pantheon, and the Roman triumphal arches.
