Spazio novità: L'onore perduto di Isabella de' Medici di Elisabetta Mori

Titolo: L'onore perduto di Isabella de' Medici Autrice: Elisabetta Mori
Casa editrice: Garzanti-Collezione storica Garzanti
Pagine: 432 Prezzo: € 25 

Per la Collezione storica Garzanti è da poco uscito L'onore perduto di Isabella de' Medici, un libro che ci racconta la vera storia di questa donna e dei suoi amori. Ripulendo la sua figura da secoli di "leggende nere" che la volevo una donna fedifraga dedita ai più sfrenati piaceri, Elisabetta Mori riesce a mostrarci l'immagine di una Isabella diversa, riscoperta anche attraverso il rapporto epistolare tra lei e il marito Paolo Giordano, e figlia di un'Italia rinascimentale piena di complotti e accordi politici.

I misteri italiani hanno radici antiche:
la vera storia di due «amanti maledetti».

La trama:
Per secoli gli storici hanno dipinto Isabella, la bellissima figlia di Cosimo de’ Medici, come una donna priva di freni morali e dedita a «illecite passioni», giustificate solo dalla scarsa considerazione che il marito Paolo Giordano Orsini avrebbe avuto per lei. Tanto che alla fine lui, dopo essersi macchiato di molti altri delitti, l’avrebbe uccisa, esasperato dai suoi tradimenti.
Quella di Isabella e Paolo Giordano, rampolli di due grandi casate italiane, è una delle più sanguinose «leggende nere» del nostro rinascimento. La tragica morte di Isabella ha ispirato, nel corso dei secoli, scrittori, poeti e scienziati, dall’elisabettiano Webster al romantico Dumas, da Domenico Guerrazzi a Gaetano Pieraccini.
Ora è finalmente possibile riscoprire la verità e restituire a Isabella l’onore cancellato da mille calunnie. Partendo dai documenti originali, a cominciare dalle lettere d’amore tra i due sposi, Elisabetta Mori ricostruisce uno dei grandi misteri della nostra storia. Dipinge un’epoca, i suoi costumi, la sua cultura, oltre che naturalmente le trame politiche dell’Italia cinquecentesca. E ci regala il ritratto vero e commovente di una giovane donna intrappolata tra accordi diplomatici, calcoli politici e sentimenti profondi.

«Io ti adoro Bella, e credi che quando mi morirò, né figli, né stato, né amici, né dame, né niun’altra cosa mi si ricordarà se non che io ti adoro.»
Paolo Giordano Ordini a Isabella de’ Medici


Elisabetta Mori, archivista storica, lavora all’Archivio Storico Capitolino di Roma. È autrice di numerosi saggi sull’Italia del rinascimento e studia da anni la figura di Isabella de’ Medici.
