From the legend of its origin, as told by Dante, through the medieval period and the Renaissance, up to the sack of Mantua in 1627 and the demise of the Gonzaga dynasty, this volume interweaves the story of the city and its ruling family with the art and artists who flourished there. Andrea Mantegna, Correggio, Titian, Giulio Romano and Andrea del Sarto are among the artists whose works are discussed and illustrated, along with architectural achievements including Romano's Palazzo Te.
