Mantua has a significant art heritage that includes, among others, the works of Pisanello (1400's), frescos of Giulio Romano, a Rubens altarpiece, and, in the nearby castle of San Giorgio, the famous Room of the Spouses, frescoed by Mantegna between 1465 and 1474. A little museum was established in the Palazzo del Podestà dedicated to the great race car driver Tazio Nuvolari, born in Mantuano. In the field of figurative arts, research was kept open by the polemic of the “Corrente,” a group created by the Milanese painter Ernesto Treccani, who in Milan represented the most knowledgeable voice of intellectual opposition to the fascist culture.
