Chapter Four analyzes a further dimension of Niccolò Valori's patronage—his friendship with the humanist and biographer Luca Della Robbia. Luca della Robbia wrote two texts informed by his Savonarolan allegiances and close connections to the Valori family: an account of the last night prior to execution of Pietro Paolo Boscoli, an unsuccessful anti‐Medicean conspirator, and a biography of Bartolomeo il vecchio Valori. The chapter shows how della Robbia's biography of Bartolomeo Valori was a sustained defence of Savonarolism's impact on Florentine political life that implicitly demonstrated the credentials of the Valori family as the natural leaders of the Savonarolan movement.
