Alison Cole reveals to us another side of the Renaissance, that of the individual patrons and their world. This unique book is both a scholarly discussion in the tradition of Jakob Burckhardt and a tour through Renaissance Italy, described with charm and filled with detail. When considering art in Italy during the Renaissance, one immediately thinks of only three centres: The republics of Tuscany and the Veneto and, in the later period, Rome with its Papacy. But during the 15th century major political changes took place in other geographic units. Several leading secular courts were established during the 1470s – a few Duchies and a Marqui. Calliope, by Cosme Turà.

Alison Cole explores these extraordinary courts, large and small, in the moment of their greatest brilliance, seeing them as the inheritors of a medieval courtly tradition, in contrast to Florence and Venice, whose model was ancient Rome. Between the two splendid poles of Naples and Milan - the two great rival powers of Italy - were a cluster of duchies and princely courts, each with its own desire for fame. Like small jewels, these isolated towns and palaces glittered with artworks of the greatest virtuosity and remarkably innovative literature, music, and the sciences. In the service of their own magnificence, these great cities and tiny duchies gathered to themselves a remarkable collection of brilliant artists, poets, and scholars.
