Detailed item info

Description
This is the story of two families, the Gherardini and the Del Giocondo, an exceptional model, a testament, and the world's most famous painting, all set against the backdrop of Renaissance Florence. Giuseppe Pallanti, following Vasari's lead, bases his work on a meticulous and in-depth review of archival materials in attributing a name to the face of the Mona Lisa: Lisa Gherardini, wife of Francesco del Giocondo. The author looks beyond the myth enshrouding one of the absolute masterpieces of Leonardo's genius, and gives us Mona Lisa as a woman with an authentic and living face. With his engaging and readable style, he has reconstructed her personal and historical dimension. The revelation of the mysterious identity of the model, unkwn up to w and object of the most disparate and far-fetched hypotheses, certainly takes thing away from the enigmatic quality of that smile. It becomes even more fascinating to us after we have been immersed in the world of her affections and read her husband's testament, palpably imbued with a genuine love for his cherished wife. The beauty of her spirit w seems even more radiant than the external beauty eternalised by Leonardo.

Description
Author BiographyGiuseppe Pallanti, a teacher from Florence who has spent 25 years researching the city's archives, has discovered the first clear evidence that da Vinci's family was closely connected to the silk trader, Ser Francesco del Giocondo, who married Lisa Gherardini in 1495. He has been praised by other scholars for helping to solve the Mona Lisa mystery.
