Veronica also edited several anthologies in honor of different men.
We had… an intriguing relationship. The romantic love story between Veronica and Marco is one of the possible interpretations of her love poems. The concluding lines, projected across the image of gondola where the two lovers passionately embrace against the landscape of Venetian canals and palaces, tell us that Veronica and Marco were lovers forever after. A beautiful fairy tale. We do not know exactly where, how, and in what conditions she died in Since she already had financial problems nine years before her death as seen in the tax report , she very likely died in far less pleasant surroundings than the film and Rosenthal convey.
Only the official in charge of death records in Venice entered the event in his register: … , 22 July. Madam Veronica Franco, forty-five years old, died of fever on 20 July. As a courtesan, she wrote about the situation of women who shared her profession, and beyond that, she wrote about the situation of women in general. Already in her two wills, we see her concern for young poor women who could not afford a sufficient dowry for a decent marriage. My first concern was always to provide for my immediate family. But I never forget other unfortunate women. Poor mothers often see the only refuge out of their misery by turning their young daughters into courtesans.
Veronica Franco vs. Maffio Venier: Sex, Death, and Poetry in Cinquecento Venice
Sensible people, in order to avoid being deceived, built on what they have inside of them, and what they can make of themselves. The prospect of bridges and hospitals. We do not know if she had any formal education some rare schools for girls existed. Cinquecento Italy provided a fertile ground for several women from all walks of life who became known and published as writers and poets.
Two major factors contributed to the favorable disposition of society towards women and their literary endeavors. Following the example and ideas of an early sixteenth century humanist Pietro Bembo, Italian literati embraced Italian over Latin, and wrote literature in Tuscan, Venetian and other dialects. Thus, many more women were able to read these new products. And by developing of print, copies of the same texts became increasingly available. Men and women are of the same essence. In modern times your merits will be heard.
She dared to raise her voice when women were supposed to be silent, she succeeded in pursuing an intellectual and public life when women were shut within the domestic sphere, she openly celebrated female sexuality when chastity was one of the highest virtues women could attain. I believe this blending to be an extremely important jewel in the tapestry of the female vision, and an essential piece in the construction of humanity as a three-dimensional whole.

Veronica: My first concern was always to provide for my immediate family. A woman reduced to a monster made of human flesh, Plaster, chalk, cardboard, leather, and wooden board, A grisly spook, a scabby [poxy] ogre, A crocodile, a hippogriff, an ostrich, a knock-kneed mare.
To sing of all that is wrong with you, Your flaws, your faults, Would take a hundred concepts, Thousands of pens and inkwells, And countless poets, The prospect of bridges and hospitals. Concerning them historians are dumb: Contemporary authors, filled with spite, The truth about such women would not write. But, women, do not cease on this account To persevere in works which you do well.
Let not discouragement ambition daunt, Nor fear that recognition never will Be yours. Good no immunity can vaunt From change, Evil is not immutable, And if in history your page was blurred, In modern times your merits will be heard.
