Dario Fo - The Pope's Daughter

After the death of Pope Innocent VIII in the divided Italy at the end of the 15th century, the last and perhaps the most influential representative of the famous Borgia family of Spanish origin, Rodrigo Borgia, aka Pope Alexander VI, ascends the throne of papal power. In a tense historical and political situation, Borja strives to establish stable relations with the empires that threaten its sovereignty and to maintain its supremacy over the principalities of the Apennine peninsula at all costs. 2014 In his only published novel, Dario Fo, faithful to the historical origins of the Borgias, reproduces the story of the famous legend, focusing on the many court intrigues and love adventures related to the person of Lucrezia Borgia, the daughter of Pope Alexander. However, the author, abandoning the character of the cruel and ruthless daughter of the grandfather depicted in the chronicles of the period and in the famous literary works written later, does not present the reader to the court of a new Lucretia who weaves those intrigues, but a victim of the political interests of her father and brother and resists those intrigues.
