Lucretia, a name that echoes through history and conjures images of intrigue, power, and tragedy. She was not just one woman, but a symbol of the complexities and contradictions of her time. One hint to her story lies in the marriage between Lucrezia Borgia and Giovanni Sforza d Aragona. Their union was arranged for political gain, as was often the case during this era. Decorative Dutch oven tiles from the 17th century may have depicted scenes from their tumultuous relationship. Another glimpse into Lucretia's life can be found in an engraving from "I misteri del vaticano" by Franco Mistrali in 1866. This portrait captures her enigmatic beauty and hints at the scandals surrounding her family. The Death of Lucretia, painted by Guido Cagnacci in the 17th century, portrays a tragic end to her story, and is said that she took her own life after being raped by Sextus Tarquinius, which led to a rebellion against Rome's monarchy. Shakespeare also immortalized Lucretia's tale in his poem "The Rape of Lucrece, " published by Kelmscott Press in 1893. The woodcut illustrations bring this ancient legend to life once again. In another portrait from Paolo Giudici's "Storia d Italia, " we see Lucrezia Borgia depicted with Tancredi Scarpelli. This illustration offers insight into her relationships beyond her ill-fated marriage with Giovanni Sforza. Charles Hutin's painting titled "Tarquin and Lucretia" depicts another version of this tragic event. It showcases the moment when Tarquin violates Lucretia's honor before she ultimately takes matters into her own hands. Michelotto Corella played a significant role in Cesare Borgia's circle as well as being married to Lucrezia Borgia herself. His presence in her bed hints at the complexities and power dynamics within their relationship.
