The Palazzo Ducale Museum Complex of Mantua, in the exhibition spaces on the ground floor of Castello di San Giorgio, hosts an exhibition devoted to Albrecht Dürer (1471-1528) and to his relationship with Italian art, in particular, with Mantegna’s etchings. The exhibition is curated by Johannes Ramharter, a major art historian, and by Peter Assmann, the director of Palazzo Ducale.
