XIII WORLD ITALIAN LANGUAGE WEEK - Research, Discovery, Innovation: Italy & Knowledge

A journey through the history, places and images of the Borgia, the most powerful family in Rome during the Fifteenth Century, narrated by Daniela Corradini. Vannozza Cattanei, born in Mantua in 1442 from a noble but impoverished family, arrived in Rome young, uneducated and without means. She worked in taverns and brothels but she was beautiful, intelligent and skilful in business, so she soon became wealthy and powerful. She was for 15 years the lover of one of the most powerful men in Rome, Cardinal Rodrigo Borgia, later Pope Alexander VI, to whom she bore four children: Cesare, Juan, Lucrezia and Joffre’.
