IN THE MIDDLE AGES

Around the year 1000 Mantua came under control of the Canossa’s and became capital of their possessions under Bonifacio. The Canossa lordship continued with Bonifacio’s daughter, Matilda of Canossa, who is responsible for the creation of the oldest church in the city, Rotonda di San Lorenzo. The church, which has been the subject of restoration activities in the early twentieth century, is a round place structure containing the women’s gallery along with the traces of the original Byzantine-era fresco decoration. After the death of Matilda, Mantua became a free commune. Alberto Pitentino, who modified the course of the Mincio River in 1190 forming the lakes that surround the city, directed the first expansion of Mantua. Many city’s towers were built in this period, including the tower of Acerbi, which is called The Cage because of its sixteenth-century walled structure and reinforcements where prisoners were pilloried. The Palazzo del Podestà, restructured in the fifteenth century by Luca Fancelli, still preserves on its facade the thirteenth century statue of Virgilio at his Desk. Other towers include the Masseria, which preserves the oldest image of the city, and the Palazzo della Ragione, now destined for the Ministry of Justice. The Palazzo della Ragione overlooks Piazza Erbe, which is then as now Mantua’s main marketplace. The Church of Santa Maria del Gradaro also dates back to the Middle Ages: it was built outside the city walls in 1256.
