Mantova Museo Urbano Diffuso

The house that Giulio Romano chose as his residence is located at 18, via Carlo Poma. He reconstructed it from existing buildings, creating a façade which, although reshaped in the 19th century, stands as the ultimate legacy of his genius. The complexity of the design can be seen even in the apparent rigour of the architect's imagination. A cornerstone of the house is the ashlar-work, which covers the entire surface and which, on the first floor, is punctuated by niche windows separated by arches. Of particular interest is the tympanum on the entrance door, which is created from the interrupted cornice.
