Curator’s Tour: Life, Love & Marriage Chests in Renaissance Italy

presented by Trinita Kennedy, curator

A Members-Only Curator’s Tour will be held on Friday, December 7, at noon.

Cassoni, or marriage chests, were an important part of marriage rituals in Renaissance Italy. Lavishly decorated with biblical and mythological imagery, these chests offer insight into the rituals of Renaissance society. Join Trinita Kennedy as she explores how cassoni and other domestic objects promoted values of love, marriage, and family life.
