San Giovanni in Croce

A woman, a painting and a villa: these are the ingredients that make San Giovanni in Croce famous. There, in the Villa Medici del Vascello lived (with her husband) Cecilia Gallerani, famous for being the lover of Ludovico Sforza and the muse for Leonardo da Vinci in his "Lady with an Ermine".
