Plots and Loves of the Genoese Women
A Genoese woman that abandoned the husband and lost her reputation should have been completely forgotten. Instead Livia Vernazza made people talk about her seducing no less than a descendant of one of the greatest Florentine families. How do we know that? Thanks to the letters preserved in the Tuscany Archive. “I can’t live like this. I can neither eat or sleep and I have a burning passion that doesn’t let me live” wrote Livia Vernazza to her husband while he was on the battlefield. The world cannot ignore letters like these, witness of a burning and unforgettable passion.
