Sophisticated courtesans, brilliant noblewomen, fictional warrior women: the women of the Italian Renaissance have often been idealized and glamorized in paintings, popular books and films. But did Italian women have a Renaissance? What was life like for courtesans like Veronica Franco or noblewomen like Lucrezia Borgia? What opportunities did real women have for power and self-expression? How did fiction and myth compare to the actual lives of early modern women?
