Dedicated to the author's father, the manuscript was most likely first written by one of Giambattista's sons, either Piero (d. 1558) or Leone (1515-1554), or perhaps his brother, Lorenzo (1482-1547).
The Strozzi family, long amongst the ruling nobility of Florence, was founded by Filippo (1426-1491) and continued by his son Giambattista (1488-1538) who was also known as Filippo. This manuscript is about the second Filippo. He became involved in intrigues against the Medicis, led attacks of Florentine exiles against Florence, was defeated, captured and ended his own life in prison.
