FREE WEBINAR | “Mantua: The Renaissance Court – Part II”
Presented by Dr. Rocky Ruggiero
This webinar will examine the extraordinary Palazzo Te (1526-1535) in Mantua, which was designed and decorated by the great artist and pupil of Raphael, Giulio Romano. Built as the quintessential pleasure palace of the marquis-turned-duke of Mantua, Federico II Gonzaga, every detail of the building was intended to delight the visitor. From the Sala dei Cavalli where the Gonzaga would banquet surrounded by actual portraits of their prize winning horses, to the extraordinarily erotic paintings in the Sala of Psyche, and finally, to the staggering Sala dei Giganti, with its colossal-scale figures who create a veritable sense of virtual reality, the Palazzo Te is one of the world’s most unique and beautiful buildings.
The webinar will include a 45-minute lecture followed by 15-minutes of Q&A.
