  • Download E-books I terribili Sforza: Trionfo e fine di una grande dinastia (Italian Edition) PDF

    By Antonio Perria

    Il 7 febbraio 1450 una delle più nobili famiglie italiane toccava il suo apogeo: in Milano entrava da trionfatore Francesco Sforza. Si compiva così un progetto iniziato nel 1385 da Muzio Attendolo che si fece soldato di ventura e venne chiamato Sforza according to l’eccezionale coraggio e los angeles straordinaria temerarietà.

    Nel volgere di un cinquantennio los angeles grande famiglia degli Sforza moveò dalla gloria alla tragedia: Galeazzo Sforza rivelerà una particolare inclinazione alla violenza e alla crudeltà; Ludovico detto il Moro darà vita a una lega che presto gli si rivolterà contro e finirà i suoi giorni prigioniero dei francesi nel castello di Loches.

    La dinastia è passata alla storia come protagonista del mutare di un’epoca: dalle durezze e ferocie del Trecento alla ricchezza armoniosa del Rinascimento.
    Francesco Sforza è stato maestro nella diplomazia e nelle arti militari; Galeazzo fu a lungo ricordato in line with i modi superbi e in line with los angeles vita dissoluta; sotto l. a. reggenza di Ludovico, Milano ebbe un periodo d’oro, con l. a. presenza alla corte di artisti come Leonardo e il Bramante e di molti altri pittori, musicisti e poeti.

    I terribili Sforza è una preziosa e rigorosa ricostruzione della storia di una famiglia, dei personaggi, delle piccole cose di tutti i giorni, delle passioni, delle crudeltà, in definitiva di un’epoca irripetibile in keeping with los angeles sua ricchezza culturale.
