How Did That Get Here? The Risks and Rewards of Making and Moving Sculptures in Renaissance Italy

Michelangelo once remarked that a good sculpture is one that can be rolled down a hill without breaking.  Many Renaissance sculptures were made to be shipped long distances, over sea and land, as they were sent as gifts from one prince to another in Early Modern Europe (ca. 1400-1700).  But how did they get there? What risks and costs were inherent in the process? What made it all worth it?   Professor Di Dio will reveal the answers she has found in the private letters of one of the greatest families of Renaissance Europe: the Medici of Florence, Italy.
