Viterbo delle delizie. La camera delle Belle castellane, cortigiane, dominatrici

Editore: Franco Maria Ricci, Milano

On their wanders through the palaces and villas of the province of Viterbo, the authors have reconstructed the stories of several women who lived there and left their (often secret) mark upon them. A whole region has thus been populated by female figures ? meek, powerful, touching, severe, even tragic ? from the much-maligned Giulia "la Bella", the lover of Pope Alexander VI, to the hapless Maria Hardouin d'Annunzio, duchess of Gallese.
