The exploits of the Borgia clan, recounted in literature, art and film, still enthrall the public as the apex of Renaissance worldliness and corruption.
The real story of Pope Alexander VI and his family, however, is more complex than the villainous caricature put forth by TV show runners.
Meet the family that helped fuel the Protesant reformation, inspired Machiavelli, and commissioned some of Rome's unsung artistic treasures.
Liz Lev, author of the Tigress of Forli, the biography of Caterina Sforza, one of the Borgia's most formidable antagonists, will recount the captivating history of Roderigo, Cesare and Lucrezia, share some of their startling commissions, and reflect on the dangers of papacy that allowed the temporal to eclipse the spiritual.
