THE RESIDENCES OF THE PRINCES

The Gonzaga lived in prestigious residences. From an architectural point of view, the oldest and most complex is Palazzo Ducale, which is one of the most extensive royal palaces in Europe with its magnificent rooms, its numerous buildings connected by corridors and galleries, its courtyards, its squares and its gardens, one of which is hanging.

Official residence of the Lords of Mantua until the seventeenth century, Palazzo Ducale has undergone several changes and adaptions to the aesthetic taste of the different eras over the years. The Palace houses masterpieces of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries such as the Hall with the Horse Cycle of Pisanello, Mantegna’s Camera degli Sposi, the Bridal Chamber, in St. George’s Castle, the precious cabinetry works in theStudiolo of Isabella D’Este in Corte Vecchia, the Appartamento di Troia by Giulio Romano in Corte Nuova, and Rapahel’s complete cycle of woven Flemish tapestries.

Private and representative residences of the Gonzaga stand at the opposite end of the city. The Palazzo di San Sebastiano, built for Francesco II in the early sixteenth century, housed nine paintings constituting the Triumphs of Caesar by Mantegna, now preserved at Hampton Court (London). The Palace now houses the City Museum with works that tell emblematic moments of Mantua’s civilization.

Palazzo Te, commissioned by Federico II, was the place where the Prince could find intellectual restoration. Considered the absolute masterpiece of Giulio Romano, Palazzo Te was built around 1525 and 1535. The Palace contains Sala dei Cavalli, the Hall of Horses, dedicated to the finest horses bred by the Gonzaga. Camera di Amore e Psiche, the Chamber of Eros and Psyche, was designed to accommodate the most distinguished guests of the ruling family during banquets and dinners. Finally, Camera dei Giganti, the Chamber of Giants, with its breathtaking acoustic and visual effects, was built in honor of Emperor Charles V who had granted Federico the title of Duke.
