Italian text

She was the daughter of a Genoese mattress maker, he was a prince belonging to the Medici dynasty and the natural son of Cosimo I. While opposed by his family, the relationship between Livia Vernazza and Don Giovanni de’Medici was consecrated after eleven years by marriage in 1619. Their correspondence, presented here, offers a unique view on romance, family and gender relations and daily life during the later Renaissance.
