Giuseppe Bessi was the Director of the Volterra Art School in Italy, from 1891 to 1910. He taught sculpture there until 1922. Many of his works are owned by the museum of Volterra. Daughter of Guido I da Polenta of Ravenna, “Francesca” was wedded to the brave, yet crippled Giovanni Malatesta (also called Gianciotto; “Giovanni the Lame”), son of Malatesta da Verucchio, lord of Rimini in or around 1275. The marriage was a political one; Guido had been at war with the Malatesta family, and the marriage of his daughter to Giovanni was a way to solidify the peace that had been negotiated between the Malatesta and the Polenta families. While in Rimini she fell in love with Giovanni’s younger (and still hale) brother, Paolo. Though Paolo too was married, they managed to carry on an affair for some ten years, until Giovanni ultimately surprised them in Francesca’s bedroom sometime between 1283 and 1286, killing them both.
