The "new town" of Sabbioneta was built from 1538 onwards by Vespasiano Gonzaga (1531-91), a descendant of a branch of the ducal family who, aged 27, took personal charge of the construction of this "ideal" city. This remarkable urban complex was built according to a star plan inside hexagonal walls with six bastions and is considered a jewel of Italian Mannerism. The town is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
