Presents some German-language accounts of entrate in northern Italy and southern Germany, as described in the travel journal of sixteen year-old Prince Ferdinand of Bavaria's 1565-1566 journey from Munich to Florence, where he represented his father, Duke Albrecht of Bavaria, at the wedding of Francesco de' Medici and Joanna of Austria. The diary's set-piece description of Joanna's royal entry into Florence is transcribed in the appendix. This, and eye-witness accounts of other entries, yield many revealing details concerning the practical application of the traditional rituals and ceremonies associated with the entrata, and offer supporting evidence for the view that both eyewitness accounts and official publications helped spread Italian customs to foreign courts.
