Horses and Mantua

One thing I can say for certain, horses and Mantua are an age-old combination. The Gonzaga court was known for its equine speciality and some frescoes and sculptures from the age speak to this love affair.

Ironically, at least to me, I saw this butcher shop in Mantova, specializing in horse meat. I found it funny. Sorry.
