Palazzo Te - Mantova

Palazzo Te is Giulio Romano’s Mantuan masterpiece. It was built and decorated between 1525 and 1535 as a place intended for the "honest leisure" of the principal, Federico II Gonzaga. Generally modelled on ancient roman villas, in spite of the restorations it has undergone throughout the centuries, Palazzo Te is one of the most valuable and best preserved Renaissance complexes. Giulio’s genius mixes Raffaello and Michelangelo cultures, testifies of in-depth knowledge of the classical tradition, and also proposes new and surprising inventions. Lively emotions accompany visitors in a rich and varied itinerary: the Courtyard of Honour, the Hall of the Horses, the Chamber of Amor and Psyche, the Chamber of the Winds and the Chamber of the Eagles, the precious Chamber of the Stuccoes and the tumultuous Chamber of the Giants.
