One thought on “Italy, Bergamo

  1. The place from where the celebrated 16C Condottiere Colleoni came from, adroit in warfare and very successful. He lived in a multicultural country at the service of the Serene Republic of Venice which included much of the Levant, Cyprus Crete and had intense contacts both with the Turks and the Germans and across the whole of Europe. To get on then you had to fit into the varied societies of mixed peoples where talent expressed itself in the highest achievements of the Renaissance. Unrivalled jewel of Amadeo’s work, Colleoni rests in the most lavish Cappella Colleoni next to the Duomo of Bergamo built in the new style of the age. His coat of arms was an emblasoned collion of which he was proud and far from feeling inferior was a match for any man in his century..
