Episode 202 – Palazzo Te in Mantua – Part IV (The Room of the Giants)
February 6, 2024

Giulio Romano’s “Room of the Giants” in the Palazzo Te is one of the most dramatic and unique pictorial cycles in history. Depicting the fall of the Titans to the Olympian gods, the colossal-scale figures, rounded corners, and illusionistic architecture create a veritable sense of virtual reality. It is a painting cycle with no beginning or end, where the spectator becomes part of the action, and the traditional subject-object relationship is destroyed.
