The sleeping beauty
Mantua, UNESCO World Heritage site, is an outstanding city where history and ancient art constantly communicate with the modernity of creative languages and cultural creations. It is home to Palazzo Ducale (Ducal Palace) built between the 14th and the 17th century mainly by the noble family of Gonzaga as their royal residence in the capital of their Duchy. Symbol of Mantua, the Ducal Palace is made of buildings connected by corridors and galleries, enriched by inner courts and wide gardens. Even if it is famous for Mantegna's frescos in the Camera degli Sposi (Bridal chamber), it also boasts many other very significant architectural and painted elements. Countless treasures are kept in this splendid city that arouses strong emotions and astonishment.
