Pietro Bembo and the Invention of the Renaissance

Pietro Bembo (1470-1547) romanced Lucrezia Borgia, climbed Mount Etna, and invented the semicolon. Titian painted his portrait. He once owned the world’s oldest book and an ancient Egyptian-style tabletop from the ruins of the Temple of Isis in Rome, and much, much more. An exhibition in Padua focuses on the man and his collection, both extraordinary.
