A Romanesca of one’s own: gender, power and vocality in Francesca Caccini’s Florence
Men Hearing Women in Medicean Florence
This project uses the rich documentation of a 1620 scandal involving a nobleman and a singing nun to explore the interaction of aural culture—specifically, gendered modes of aurality and vocality—with the erotic and political life of early modern Florence.
