The House of Hohenstaufen and Italy

Enthroned King

Over thirty years after the major Hohenstaufen exhibition in Stuttgart in 1977, the Reiss-Engelhorn-Museen in Mannheim is devoting a major cultural history exhibition to the most important European dynasty of the 12th and 13th century.

In close collaboration with the University of Heidelberg, the Generaldirektion Kulturelles Erbe Rheinland-Pfalz and the Administration of the Public Stately Homes and Gardens in Hesse, a medieval exhibition is being put on, which examines the innovations and forces of development during the Hohenstaufen era in three regions, the Rhine-Main-Neckar region, Northern Italy and the Kingdom of Sicily. Important original historical objects and treasures, some of which are being displayed in Germany for the first time, bring the history, art and culture of the Hohenstaufen to life.
