Thanks to the linking that connect art patronage and political communication in building and decorating of the civil late Medieval architectures, aim of this paper is the understanding of 14th century painting in Mantua territory in its specific historical and geographical context, with particular regard to decorative cycles located in fortified complexes. the relationship is faced through considering two  contexts that emerge both because of their artistic value and their monumental relevance: Castel d’Ario and Villimpenta castles. In this framework provided by the historiographical and archaeological  topic named secondo incastellamento, the analysis offers the chance to deepen the role of architectures in the socio-political communication and self-representation by the secular élites in the 14th  century Mantua territory. the two case studies also offer the opportunity to build a dialogue between the disciplines of the Medieval art history and Medieval archaeology in the field of historical  architectures analysis, building a bridge between different perspectives by means of the same interpretive key.
