Boldrini Palace

Mantova Museo Urbano Diffuso

This palace was built at the behest of the wealthy Boldrini family, originally from Sermide, and later came to belong to the Cantoni family. Located at number 42 on Via Chiassi, it is striking for its size and for the gracefulness of its forms. Its crenellations are concealed and were previously dotted with some prominent frescoes, which now appear only partially on the façade overlooking Via Sacchi. The quality of the frescoes is such that scholars have attributed them to Niccolò da Verona. Born in Verona around 1420, Niccolò Solimani was the uncle of the painter Liberale da Verona. He produced other works in the district of Mantua and worked for the Gonzaga family on a regular basis.
