About this Item

205 x 290 mm. A fine impression on laid paper. One vertical crease, flattened; trimmed just outside borderline; remnants of hinges to upper corners of verso. Blumenthal: Theatre Art of the Medici 81 and pp. 160-77. Le Nozze degli Dei was written to celebrate the wedding of Duke Ferdinando II de' Medici and Vittoria della Rovere, daughter of the Duke of Urbino, and first performed in Florence at the Palazzo Pitti on July 8, 1637. The libretto was by Giovanni Carlo Coppola, the music by Gagliano and others, the staging by Alfonso Parigi, and the dances by Agnolo Ricci. Della Bella executed a series of six etchings of scenes from the opera. "As maestro di cappella for nearly 35 years to the Grand Duke of Tuscany and of Florence Cathedral (S Maria del Fiore), [Gagliano] was one of the most important Italian musicians of the period. His Dafne (1608) is a milestone in the early history of opera, and his secular madrigals and monodies and many sacred works in various genres, though now little known, were much acclaimed in the first half of the 17th century." Edward Strainchamps in Grove Music Online. Della Bella (1610-1664), a noted Italian printmaker, enjoyed the patronage of the Medicis; he also made trips to Florence to record the court festivities of the Medici. Parigi (1606-1656) was a noted Italian architect and engraver. Bookseller Inventory # 27475
