Photographer's Note

Palazzo Te
It is the work of Giulio Romano who in 1525 designed it on commission from the Marquis Federico II Gonzaga who used it for his entertainment. He made you live the "official" lover Isabella Boschetti. The "Palace of lucid deceptions" stood in the middle of an island rich in woods and surrounded by the waters of a lake, now drained: mysterious, rich in symbols and myths that stand out in the wonderfully frescoed rooms even by Giulio Romano himself, like the the famous Sala dei Giganti and that of Amore e Psiche and, last but not least, the hall of horses that celebrates the Gonzaga stables that were famous throughout Europe.
