The inside story
The Ducal Palace of Mantua (Palazzo Ducale di Mantova), is an architectural complex and museum in the town of Mantua, in Lombardy, Italy. The group of buildings were built between the 14th and 17th century mainly as royal residences for the family of Gonzaga, who ruled the city Mantua at the time. Now a museum, the Ducal Palace of Mantua features stunning sculptures, frescoes and an extensive art collection from the Renaissance and Baroque periods.
The Gonzaga family lived in the palace from 1328 to 1707, after which, the palace became a possession of the House of Habsburg and part of the Austrian Empire. During the late 19th century, the palace underwent a series of renovations and became a state-owned monument and museum open to the public.
