Some brief overview of book
A biography of Vittoria Colonna, confidante of Michelangelo, scion of one of the most powerful families of her era, and a pivotal figure in the Italian Renaissance Ramie Targoffs Renaissance Woman tells of the most remarkable woman of the Italian Renaissance Vittoria Colonna, Marchesa of Pescara. Vittoria has long been celebrated by scholars of Michelangelo as the artists best friendthe two of them exchanged beautiful letters, poems, and works of art that bear witness to their intimacybut she also had close ties to Charles V, Pope Clement VII and Pope Paul III, Pietro Bembo, Baldassare Castiglione, Pietro Aretino, Queen Marguerite de Navarre, Reginald Pole, and Isabella dEste, among others. Vittoria was the scion of an immensely powerful family in Rome during that citys most explosively creative era.
Art and literature flourished, but political and religious life were under terrific strain. Personally involved with nearly every major development of this periodthrough both her marriage and her own talentsVittoria was not only a critical political actor and negotiator but also the first woman to publish a book of poems in Italy, an event that launched a revolution for Italian womens writing. Vittoria was, in short, at the very heart of what we celebrate when we think about sixteenth-century Italy; through her story the Renaissance comes to life anew.
