Albeit somewhat undermined by an adjoining drainpipe, this superb and impressive capital is taken from the building at 13 Piazza Marconi, which showcases the most prominent Mantuan painted façade. The frescoes on the building can be attributed, directly or indirectly, to Andrea Mantegna or to the elite circle of his best pupils. The coat of arms depicted here features an alternating pattern of the sun and the moon, which can also be found on the insignia of the Gonzaga family in various guises.
