Venus Rising

The love that inspired a masterpiece

Florence 1475 – the most magnificent city of the renaissance, filled with danger, lies and fear.

In a whirlpool of power and wealth, the loveliest girl in Italy poses nude for a brilliant young artist. The result will be a masterpiece that will delight the world for centuries – Sandro Botticelli’s The Birth of Venus.

Sandro’s inspiration is the stunningly beautiful Simonetta Vespucci. Barely out of her teens, Simonetta has married richly but what is her secret connection to the city’s ruler, Prince Lorenzo de Medici ?

And why does Botticelli paint her naked at the risk of his life ?

Venus Rising – love in a world of treachery.
