Palazzo del Te
The Palazzo del Te was built in Mantua, Italy from 1526 to 1534. The suburban location in Mantua allowed for a mixing of both palace and villa architecture. The Chamber of the Giants is a room inside the Palazzo painted to show Jupiter striking giants with thunderbolts. The building also features other paintings and many decorative designs sculpted into the walls.
