Commissioned by Marquis Francesco II and built between 1506 and 1508 to host the “Triumphs
of Caesar” by Mantegna (today part of the Royal Collection at Hampton Court).
Situated along the axis that connects the Ducal Palace and the Te Palace, San Sebastiano Palace became the City Museum in 2005, housing finds and works of art owned by the municipality and associated with Mantua’s various historic periods, from its origins to the 18th century. Inside, modern technology and multimedia stations help set the town planning and art in context, providing an insight into the connection between the City Museum and its surroundings.
