«Ti lascio con la penna, non col cuore». Lettere di Eleonora Rinuccini al marito Neri dei principi Corsini. 1835-1858

  • Edited by:
  • Cristina Badon,

Published here are two hundred of the approximately seven hundred unpublished letters that Eleonora Rinuccini, the last representative of her dynasty, wrote to her husband, Neri Corsini, Marquis of Lajatico. A daily correspondence over twenty-five years of a marriage lived mostly at a distance on account of his numerous political and administrative commitments and her family and social duties. The letters, which are conserved in the Corsini archive in Florence, bear witness among other things, to a marital relationship characterised by great affection. They also reveal to us a woman who was in many respects ahead of her time, in terms of her moral codes, her behaviour and her vision of society and the people who moved in it in the crucial years of the Italian Risorgimento.
