Renaissance Florence Wedding

Florence Renaissance Wedding Florence Renaissance Wedding Information
If you decide you want to get married in Florence, you can do it at the Palazzo Vecchio and hire people in Renaissance costume. We picked up this brochure the other day in the Office of the Calcio Storico Fiorentino. Looks to be about 52 Euro per character. So as to not look like a cheapskate, you should hire at least 8 characters.

The woman on the brochure is Maddalena Doni. Her wedding portrait was painted by Raphael in 1506 and is in the Pitti Palace Galleria Palatina. She married Angelo Doni and it was quite the wedding or so we were told. Check out that necklace. For more on her “pose” see this post.
