ZELOTTI, Giovanni Battista
(b. 1526, Verona, d. 1578, Mantova)
Villa Godi Malinverni, Lonedo di Lugo Vicentino
In the central hall of the villa, in one of the two illusory windows, seated on a marble bench, a gentleman in sixteenth-century dress - probably the client, Girolamo Godi - turns his back on a landscape that is setting for The Rape of Ganymede.
