Costanza Riva – Bianca Cappello’s Palace in Florence. Symbols, myths and alchemical allegories
While investigating the symbolic value of those “grotesque graffiti”, it is not difficult to guess how much Bianca and Francesco were united not only by their love, but also by their deep passion for hermetic studies. The allegories masterfully depicted by Poccetti open to a reading that goes beyond all those formulated so far.
That fabric of symbols veils an important alchemical-sapiential message that only minds within the Hermetic Doctrine could conceive: a path that perfectly matches with a more hidden and intimate journey, which can only be experienced with the depth of the heart.
