The essay deals with the costume worn by Manto, the female hero of the painted decoration in the Sala di Manto (Mantua, Ducal Palace). Manto's dress is meant to represent an ancient costume, but, at a closer inspection, it does not appear a neutral recreation: its style, composition, color and materal features are carefully conceveid in order to fit the gender of Manto, and, as a consequence, to limit her role in the foundation of Mantua

Abstract

The essay deals with the costume worn by Manto, the female hero of the painted decoration in the Sala di Manto (Mantua, Ducal Palace). Manto's dress is meant to represent an ancient costume, but, at a closer inspection, it does not appear a neutral recreation: its style, composition, color and materal features are carefully conceveid in order to fit the gender of Manto, and, as a consequence, to limit her role in the foundation of Mantua
