1. Mozzati, Tommaso. "Bartolomé Ordóñez and the Tomb of Juana La Loca in Granada: Italianism, Spanish Renaissance, and the European Politics of Charles V" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the RSA Annual Meeting, Humboldt University of Berlin, Berlin, Germany, <Not Available>. 2019-08-17 <>
Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: The erection of the tomb of Juana La Loca and Felipe El Hermoso lasted for almost a century; however it prevailed as one of the most urgent preoccupations of Charles V’s patronage. The sepulcher, ordered to Domenico Fancelli in 1518, was then commissioned to the atelier of Bartolomé Ordóñez after the death of the settignanese sculptor. My contribution aims to highlight the political significance of the commission: for this purpose, it will underline the dynastic value of the monument and will read its complex iconography in the context of the literary milieu of Charles V court. At the same time it will bring its Italianism back to the historical moment linked to Habsburg’s election: the tomb is one of the most exquisite and early examples of a programmatic assumption of Tuscan language in sculpture by an Iberian artist and it presents itself as an artistic manifesto of modern taste.
