Lubkin's fascinating book presents the first full-length portrait of Renaissance Milan in English since that of Cecilia Ady in 1907, and the most fully documented description of any fifteenth-century Italian court yet to be published in this country. As such, the book fills a large lacuna in Italian historical studies. A vivid picture of everyday life at the court of duke Galeazzo Maria Sforza, son of the military strongman and self-made duke of Milan, Francesco Sforza, Lubkin's work is the product of fifteen years' labor in the city archives of Milan, Mantua, Modena, and Florence.

Vom Verlag: Ambitious, extravagant, progressive, and sexually notorious, Galeazzo Maria Sforza inherited the ducal throne of Milan in 1466, at the age of twenty-two. Although his reign ended tragically only ten years later, the young prince's court was a dynamic community where arts, policy making, and the panoply of state were integrated with the rhythms and preoccupations of daily life. Gregory Lubkin explores this vital but overlooked center of power, allowing the members of the Milanese court to speak for themselves and showing how dramatically Milan and its ruler exemplified the political, cultural, religious, and economic aspirations of Renaissance Italy.
