Odoardo Valenti Gonzaga

Odoardo Valenti Gonzaga, commissioner of the baroque transformations of the Palace, private waiter of Duke Carlo II Gonzaga Nevers, ambassador to the French Court, for questions concerning the thorny Monferrato controversy, Marquis of Montiglio and Knight of the Order of the Redeemer.

His desire to appear and be worthy of an ever higher position on the Mantuan social scale led him to renovate the family palace, transforming it into a sumptuous Baroque residence.
