Mantua and Sabbioneta

Mantua shows the renewal and extension of an existing city. Typically, Mantua's layout is irregular with regular parts showing different stages of its growth since the Roman period and includes many medieval edifices among them an 11th-century rotunda and a Baroque theatre. The city offers exceptional testimonies to the urban, architectural and artistic realizations of the Renaissance, linked through the visions and actions of the ruling Gonzaga family. The ideals of the Renaissance, fostered by the Gonzaga family, are present in the towns’ morphology and architecture.[1][2]
