Natalia Nowakowska (Tutor and Fellow in History, Somerville College and Principal Investigator 'The Jagiellonians Project') gives a talk for the History Faculty.

In 1518, the Milanese Neapolitan princess Bona Sforza travelled to Krakow to marry King Sigismund I of Poland, in one of the most celebrated weddings seen in Renaissance Central Europe. The wedding is remembered today as bringing Italian food and culture to Poland.
