Tour Highlights:
Palazzo Te, one of the most beautiful villas in Italy and a masterpiece of the Mannerism, was built by Giulio Romano, Raphael’s most talented pupil, between 1525 and 1535, as a suburban residence for Federico II Gonzaga, Duke of Mantua ( it. Mantova ). For the decoration project Giulio Romano followed the natural inclinations of the Duke, with the first half of the palace celebrating private passions and the second one public virtues and political aspirations. Among the beautiful rooms the Hall of the Horses where horses are portrayed life- size, the Room of Psyche, where the myth of Eros and Psyche is painted, the David’s Loggia and the famous Giant’s Room. Giulio Romano’s spectacular paintings represent the fall of the Giants from Olympus after their rebellion against Jupiter. The visual impact is so powerful that one feels as if everything is actually crashing down on them.
