Triumphal Medal - Styles and Influences
Triumphal Medal of Alphonso of Aragon, Duke of Calabria
(1435 - 1495)
Guazzalotti, a priest, canon of Prato and secretary to the Pope, was an amateur medalist but this medal has all the features of early Renaissance commemorative medals. It commemorates the conquest and triumphal entrance of Alphonso I of Aragon into Nap-les on 26 February 1443.
