This grand spectacle shall occur Saturday, May 14th, AS 45. The days festivities shall be styled after Our cousins courts of Pavia, 1510 and We ask that those subjects of able means share in Our celebration of the Italian Renaissance in all of its glory. We expect delegates from the surrounding provinces of fair Lombardy- Florence, Venice, Milan, Mantua, & even Rome Herself. May the art, music, and pageant of the Doges mark the day!
