Between the XVI and the XVII century, many famousness and clever women were able to get the Popes and the artists attention. For example, the most known case was about Margherita Luti, better known as the Fornarina: Raphael loved her and was inspired by her in many paintings that he did.
But this is not the only case: we have the courtesan Fiammetta who has a long relationship with Cesare Borgia, which is the only case of a courtesan who gave her name to a square.
This course focuses on the role, very often forgotten, of those famousness women which sometimes became muses, sometimes became political characters of the Rome of the Popes.
Many comparisons and examples of paintings and masterpieces where they appeared will be offered, that’s for having a clear view about their role at that time.
