Abstract

Prince Ferdinand of Bavaria (1550-1608) represented his parents at the 1565 wedding of his mother's sister Joanna of Austria to Duke Francesco de' Medici. His travel journal describes the intermedi performed between the acts of Francesco d'Ambra's comedy La Cofanaria on the occasion of this wedding. Unlike the three published Italian accounts of the intermedi in festival books recording this wedding, Ferdinand's account includes descriptions of the play itself, and its prologue, and of another performance of the play in Florence. It also provides details concerning intermedi in Mantua and other performances, as well as audience reception.
