  • Title: Feste di matrimonio a Roma [A papal master of ceremonies complained about the small part religion played in Roman marriages. Accounts of actual marriages, like that of Rosata Caffari, reveal a complex series of agreements between families, gift giving and festivities. This culminated in the bride's transfer to the groom's residence. These practices exalted the families involved and reinforced social solidarity.]
