Despite all the seriousness normally surrounding Art, it has a sense of humour too. In Mantova you can find multiple examples of this hidden around the city, and especially inside Palazzo Te! If you have been inside Palazzo Te, you know exactly what I mean. If you have not visited this historical ‘pleasure palace’, you are missing out on a very interesting part of Mannerist Art History. I hope these unique faces inspire you to pay a visit to this wonderful city full of surprises.
