The exhibition “The Future of History.  Mantua UNESCO Chair’s researches”, curated by the Mantua Campus of the Politecnico di Milano, has focused attention on the heritage to be rediscovered, known and enhanced through design in its various scales. The theme was, in fact, the project and its representation: the project, as a synthesis between the analytical ability to look at reality and the imaginative power to prefigure what is not yet visible, and representation, as its necessary expression and first form of transmission. In the sixteenth century, in the same way, the projects and works of Giulio Romano and the artists of his school left architectural and artistic traces all over the Gonzaga territory.
