  Notes of art in Lombardy

Located on the right bank of the Oglio, at the north-eastern end of the Province of Cremona, Isola Dovarese takes its name from the river, which with its sinuous loops makes it seem like an island, and from the powerful Dovara family, feudal place since the Middle Ages. At the end of the sixteenth century the Gonzaga family was responsible for the construction of the large square, called Gonzaghesca, which characterizes the small village and is a fine example of Renaissance urban space. A rectangular plan is defined by a long L-shaped arcade building open in the middle by an entrance arch surmounted by a tympanum, and completed by the Town Hall and the Palazzo della Guardia.
