    Renaissance Cassoni - Wedding Chests & the Art of Marriage in 15C Florence
    Marriage in Renaissance Italy was anything but a love match. Indeed, these were dynastic
    unions intended to strengthen family ties. Often commissioned by the groom and carried
    aloft through the city streets, this lecture looks at the rich decoration of furniture intended
    as part of the marriage dowry. These exquisite chests or cassone were often illustrated with
    improving or historical images for the benefit of the newly married couple.
