The northern Italian city of Mantua, Lombardy, is surrounded by lakes on three sides. Many old noble palaces adorn this Renaissance city, the historical centre of which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Massimo Ghisi and Vanna Bernardelli have rebuilt one of these palaces, Palazzo Beccaguti Cavriani, dating to the 16th century, and have created spaces that combine architecture, design and art.


The original structure of the palace has been restored and supplemented with modern elements. The bricked arches facing the courtyard have been opened and filled with windows in steel frames; old frescoes, stuccoes and vaults have also been restored. At the same time, the historical building has been adapted for modern usage. In addition to the architectural studio Disegno, the Palazzo houses a gallery with the couple’s collection of contemporary art and their apartment in the main building, which opens onto a lush, green garden with a pool.


The apartment can be rented together with the courtyard and the gallery. It has a living room, dining room, kitchen, three bedrooms and three bathrooms, and can accommodate up to six people. There is also a small apartment – painted over and over with old frescoes – with a kitchenette and bathroom for two people. The rooms will captivate you with their combination of historical substance, modern design and contemporary art.
