Art in Shakespeare and other essays

The work delves into the debated question of contemporary Italian Renaissance art in the corpus of Shakespeare’s plays, and brings new light to the Bard’s preference, among so many talented artists , for Julio Romano, the “rare Italian master”, who embellished Mantua, the city visited by English noblemen, at the time, and one of the playwright’s favorite settings  in his “Italian” plays.  The book  includes a new study on Mantua and William Shakespeare, a totally new perspective, which  discovers the city of the Gonzaga lords as a veritable and fitting outdoor stage for Shakespeare.
