Hotel & Family

The renovation of Casa Museo Palazzo Gonzaga was born from a project idea of, Alfonso Rocco Linardi, Professor of the Faculty of Engineering – University of Pavia, Mantua branch, and his wife Cristina Mortari.

Once secret and exclusive, the Palace reveals, after 22 years of restoration, the Gallery, Chapel and Rooms and offers themselves to the visitor in all their magnificence.
They represent, as Prof. Rodolfo Signorini states, a “reason for awareness of the high value of Mantua’s human, cultural and artistic civilization and stand as a majestic, solemn testimony”.
