Zoom meeting

Come away and join us on a series of book reads that will take a look at the influence Italy has had on our imaginations, from art and light to food and wine, led by Museum educator Maryterese Pasquale-Bowen and curator Nancy Green.

Our second virtual adventure will be The Princess of Mantua by Marie Ferranti. This intriguing book explores the complex life of Barbara von Brandenburg who, at the age of ten, left her native Germany to marry the Prince of Mantua, Ludovico Gonzaga, and finds herself at the center of one of the most refined courts in Europe. Intertwined with her tale is Andrea Mantegna’s masterpiece, The Gonzaga Family.
