Yes, that's another beautifully portrayed scene. Belle Ami is quite the painter with words. I could picture Sophia reliving all her memories with Giuliano while communing with the wedding portrait.

I enjoyed the scene in which Sophia goes to the cave where all of the wine bottles are stored. It was a very emotional scene where I really felt the pain of her loss of Gerhard. It was difficult, but well written.
I also liked that scene, but for a different reason. The imagery was so strong I could see everything that the cave - the barrels, the secret trap door, etc.

There were lot incidents that stand out in this read but what interested me the most was the unexpected incident in the Getty museum.

You're ten steps ahead of me! When I read the book, I wasn't sure if all of the details about the Medici family were correct. I just googled Giuliano Medici and it turns out he really had a illegitimate son with his mistress Fioretta, and his son grew up to become Pope Clement VII.
Wow :shock2: this is a fascinating detail, thumbs up! :D

My favorite scene was when Angela gave her creepy boss what he deserved.
