Summary
Zummo, a Sicilian sculptor, is summoned by Cosimo III to join the Medici court. Late seventeenth-century Florence is a hotbed of repression and hypocrisy. All forms of pleasure are brutally punished, and the Grand Duke himself, a man for whom marriage has been an exquisite torture, hides his pain beneath a show of excessive piety
Summary
In seventeenth-century Florence, Zummo, a Sicilian sculptor, is secretly charged by the Grand Duke to create a life-size wax replica of a woman and finds himself surrounded by a web of jealousies and betrayals, as he takes a lover and is shadowed by a mysterious priest
