The main aim of this book is to describe this dual personality, commonly thought to be associated with intrigues, incestuous relationships and crimes. Hence the need to make a distinction between myth and history of Lucrezia. The three sections – Lucrezia and the poets; The Borgias and the practice of infamy in the Renaissance; The myth of Lucrezia between the 19th and the 20th centuries – include essays on the history of 16th-century literature; on the history of mentality and science; on musical and literary criticism.
