DREAMING IN MANTOVA

Risultati immagini per palazzo te

 

Mantova, Italian Capital of Culture for 2016, continues the second season of its Sogno Fatto a Mantova (A Dream Made in Mantua) with a programme of modern and contemporary art  centred in the monumental Palazzo Te, designed by Giulio Romano.

The exhibition features works by world famous sculptors such as Alberto Giacometti, Antony Gormley, Hans Op De Beeck and Davide Rivalta, as well as installations, videos and photographs by contemporary Italian and international artists.

All the works have been chosen to represent the theme of city, architecture and communal living spaces.

Palazzo Te, built by Duke Federico II Gonzago in the mid-16th century, is the seat of Mantova's Civic Museum. The name has nothing to do with tea, but probably derives from tigli, the Italian name for plane trees.

The exbibition runs until the 13th December 2016.
