  • Title: La festa tra spettacolo e invenzione: il corte nuziale di Isabella d'Aragona e Gian Galeazzo Sforza [Magnificence was expected of Italian courts in the 15th century. This extended to wedding with their diplomatic overtones. In 1489 King Alfonso of Naples married his daughter Isabella to the young duke of Milan, Gin Galeazzo Sforza. Ceremonies in both Naples and Milan were marked by conspicuous display. Scholars and artists, including Leonardo da Vinci, were enlisted to ornament these nuptials.]
