The Medici Seal

Everyone knows that I've always been intrigued by the story of the Medici's. Even when I took art history at college, this was before I ever came to Italy, the stories and tales about the renaissance and the Medici family caught my attention. I don't really know why I "like" this family so much, it's just something about all the stories, the paintings, their wealth and their destiny.. Anycow, I'm now well in my 3rd book about them.
The Medici Seal

So far I can say that, it's exciting from page one, and the little boy Matteo takes you on a dangerous,heart breaking roundtrip, with messer Leonardo da Vinci and the Borgia and the Medici's as friends and enemies. I'll do a complete review when I'm done reading it.
I also bought "His last duchess" which is the story about Lucrezia de'Medici, who married the duke of Ferrara. That's up next!

From before I've read The Medici Curse (my favourite) and the Medici Secret.

Jeg er utdannet Gullsmed, og har videreutdannet meg som Edelstensfatter i Firenze, Italia. Jeg er veldig interessert i historie, spesielt middelalder & renessansen. Jeg spiller (mye) golf, og drmmer om kjpe et torp p Hedmarken, med solsvidde, laftede hus, med gress p taket, ha verksted i stabburet og bake mitt eget brd. <3
