Join Sarah Dunant, international bestselling author of the Italian renaissance trilogy The Birth of Venice, In the Company of the Courtesan and Sacred Hearts, as she shares the secrets of her trade in a sumptuously illustrated talk.

In her new novel, Blood and Beauty, Sarah explores the corrupt and powerful world of the infamous Borgia family, as they fight for power using their own flesh and blood as pawns in a brutal political game.

The novel takes place against the backdrop of the beauty and creativity of the Italian Renaissance. In recreating the past as a living, breathing place Sarah has visited churches, archives museums and art galleries all over Italy. She will tell the story of her discoveries; how the decoding of old paintings and the work of historians helped her to penetrate hidden worlds inside the Renaissance.

About the Novel Blood and Beauty: By the end of the fifteenth century, the beauty of Italy is matched by its brutality, nowhere more than in Rome and inside the Church. When Cardinal Rodrigo Borgia buys his way into the papacy as Alexander VI, he is defined not just by his wealth or his passionate love for his illegitimate children, but by his blood: He is a Spanish Pope in a city run by Italians. If the Borgia’s are to triumph, this charismatic, consummate politician with a huge appetite for life, women, and power must use papacy and family—in particular, his eldest son, Cesare, and his daughter Lucrezia—in order to succeed.

Cesare, with a dazzlingly cold intelligence and an even colder soul, is his greatest—though increasingly unstable—weapon. Later immortalized in Machiavelli’s The Prince, he provides the energy and the muscle. Lucrezia, beloved by both men, is the prime dynastic tool. Twelve years old when the novel opens, hers is a journey through three marriages, and from childish innocence to painful experience, from pawn to political player.
