This album is inspired by the stories surrounding the powerful Borgia dynasty that ruled in Italy between XI and XVI century. Among the most famous Borgia: Pope Alexander VI (elected in 1492) and father of the most notorious figure Lucrezia Borgia.
The album -although starting from some historic elements- has no claims to be a realistic representation of historic events.
Notes on the Album
Contains four stories originally published in France between 2004 and 2010.
- La conquista del papato
- Il potere e l'incesto
- Le fiamme del rogo
- Tutto è vanità
This edition treats all four stories as a unique story without separation between the four original issues.
These stories were originally coloured by Manara with a watercolour technique rather than being black and white stories coloured specifically for this series.
