THE FRENCH AND AUSTRIAN DOMINATION

With the fall of the Gonzaga family Mantua came under the Austrian and French domination.

In 1775 the Palazzo Accademico was expanded and became the location of the Royal Academy of Sciences and Literary Arts, founded by Empress Maria Theresa of Austria, nowAccademia Nazionale Virgiliana. A few years earlier the Teatro Scientifico had been built there, a small precious baroque jewel designed by architect Antonio Galli Bibiena. Among the prestigious guests playing at the Theatre there is a young Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, who performed there a few days after its opening.

Maria Theresa was also responsible for the founding of the public library, the so-called Teresiana, inside the Palazzo degli Studi. Perfect example of neoclassical style, the Palazzo d’Arco (1782-92) is now a museum, which houses antique furniture and beautiful paintings. The Zodiac Room, with its cycle of sixteenth-century frescoes, overlooks the garden.

In 1810 the Palace was the location of the Napoleonic trial of Tyrolean hero Andreas Hofer, who was condemned and executed at the Cittadella di Porto (now Cittadella) where there is a garden dedicated to him. Between the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, Mantua was annexed by the Cisalpine Republic and occupied by Napoleon’s troops. The French domination was responsible for the renovation of the Piazza Virgiliana, which was turned into a public garden with a bust of the Poet. The current monument dates back to 1926.
