Palazzo del Te in Mantua, Italy is the summer palace of Duke Federico Gonzaga II. The palace architecture and its interiors are considered a masterpiece of Giulio Romano, the master architect, painter and muralist who was also one of the chief pupils of Raphael in Rome.
Designed and built in the period 1525-35, the palace also houses a splendid garden. However, the principal attractions of the palace are its three rooms: the Sala dei Cavalli, containing life size portraits of magnificent Gonzaga horses; the Sala di Pasche, full of intensely erotic frescoes depicting loves of Roman gods; and the majestic Sala dei Giganti, a room painted from floor to ceiling depicting a continuous scene of a fierce battle fought between the Titans and the Olympian gods.
Overall, the Palazzo Te is considered as one of the finest examples of the Mannerist architecture.
