Lengthy analyses of the exhibited works and commentaries on significant buildings of the period accompany some 45 substantial essays that include surveys of painting, sculpture, printmaking and decorative arts under the Madruzzo; twelve well-illustrated examinations of 16th-century church and secular architecture; an analysis of religious iconography in the art of the Trento region from the Late Renaissance to the Baroque period; discussions of trends in literature and science; and chronicles of the history of the Madruzzo prince-bishops and their role as mediators between Rome and the Hapsburg emperors during the Counter-Reformation.
