||The Gonzagas and Mantua were, in their heyday, largely one and the same: together they emerged from the Middle Ages, became strong, fortified their strength, and learned to decorate their fortifications, pitted brother against brother and sons against fathers while fostering artists from Mantegna and Donatello to Titian and Rubens. Popes and kings were houseguests, Tasso and Ariosto lived here. This program revisits the centuries of history that were written and often painted upon the walls of the Palace of the Gonzagas.
