PAZZI CONSPIRACY [Pazzi conspiracy], 1478, plot against Lorenzo de' Medici (Lorenzo il Magnifico) and his brother Giuliano, designed to end the hegemony of the Medici in the Florentine state and to enlarge papal territory.
It was instigated by Pope Sixtus IV, his nephew Gerolamo Riario, Archbishop Salviati, and members of the Pazzi family, a wealthy Florentine family that rivaled the Medici.
Actually, the Pazzi were tools in the conspiracy, which aimed not only at the death of the Medici, but at the elevation of Riario to power in Florence.

 Pazzi - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Andrea de' Pazzi was also the patron for Brunelleschi's chapter house for the Franciscan community at Florence's Santa Croce church, often known as the Pazzi Chapel.
A saint was to arise from among the family, the ecstatic Carmelite nun Saint Maria Magdalena de' Pazzi (1566-1607).
The main seat of the family, at canto Pazzi, where Borgo degli Albizi crosses the via del Proconsolo was rebuilt 1462–1472 for Jacopo de' Pazzi to designs by Giuliano da Maiano, the sculptor-architect favored by the family.

 The Pazzi Conspiracy
The Pazzi device reflected their history and was derived from the French Ducal Family with crescents, battlement towers, and twin dolphins on a blue field with nine crosses.
But due to the Pazzi family being one of the "grande" names and thus excluded by Florentine Law to participate in government, Andrea elected to become a commoner (popolano) upon his return to settle in Florence in the early years of the Quattrocento.
Jacopo de' Pazzi was the sole survivor of his generation at the time of the conspiracy.

 book of hours, recto
This leaf comes from a Book of Hours possibly connected to the Pazzi family, a powerful Florentine clan, who at the height of their influence were second only to the Medici.
The Pazzi had been members of the older feudal nobility of Florence, but their power was in decline by the 14th century, and they languished in relative obscurity until a revival of their fortunes, beginning in 1420, when they established a successful banking venture in Rome.
As a result of the conspiracy, Florence was plunged into a two year war with the Papacy and its allies, and the Pazzi family were forced into exile, all public symbols of their power destroyed.

Andrea Pazzi, the head of a wealthy banking family in the neighbourhood around Santa Croce, which included not only a large church but a Franciscan monastery, offered to build a chapter house for the monks as well as a structure that would function as a funerary chapel for his family.
The Pazzi Chapel was one of Brunelleschi's last commissions and much of it was built between 1442 and 1446, the year of the architect's death.
The 'Pazzi Conspiracy', as it has come to be known, ended with the Pazzi family being exiled from Florence.

 Abstract, Nexus 2000, Mark Reynolds: A New Geometric Analysis of the Pazzi Chapel in Santa Croce, Florence
Mark Reynolds reexamines the Pazzi Chapel in Florence, applying his geometrical skills to the task of uncovering the original design intentions, and revealing the extraordinary interrelatedness of the individual parts and the whole of the chapel.
Correct analysis is a difficult task, although it may appear to be easy, given the proportioning that is seen and the number of theories that abound on the subject from the annals of art and architectural history.
The Pazzi Chapel is based on the square and its three major divisions: rational whole numbers and fractional parts; square roots and irrationals; the special case of the irrational, the golden section 'family'.

 History of Florence: Pazzi's Conspiracy
The Pazzi were a rich family of bankers of the Florence of the Renaissance.
Thanks above all to the support of the population the epilogue of the conspiracy was painful for the Pazzi's family and for their allies so much that within few times from the trap the conspirators were thrown from the window of Palazzo Vecchio.
Francesco de' Pazzi was hung to the third window of the Loggia dei Lanzi and also Francesco Salviati, his brother Jacopo and other priests conspirators suffered the same fate.

 Harvard University Press/Florence/Brunelleschi's Pazzi Chapel
"How poor the Pazzi must be, might have run the first thoughts of some resurrected fourteenth-century member of those great, still-flourishing families (one of the Peruzzi then actually being called Giotto) on entering Brunelleschi's chapel.
Even with its altar and its della Robbia roundels of the Apostles, it is indeed devoid of any sense of sectarian religious awe, though not--as one gazes up into its dome--of a sense of the eternal.
Logical, light-filled, calm and yet exhilarating--almost, daringly, a space liveable-in--the Pazzi chapel is unprepared-for, except by Brunelleschi's own earlier buildings.

Andrea Pazzi commissioned Brunelleschi in 1429 to build a chapter house in the monastery courtyard of Santa Croce, although it appears that building didn't begin until about 1440-2.
It was finished in 1469, more than two decades after Brunelleschi's death, and was completed by Michelozzo and Guiliano da Maiano (1432-90), who may have added the loggia across the front of the chapel.

 La congiura de' Pazzi - Vittorio Alfieri - Microsoft Reader eBook - Italian
L'autore trasse lo spunto dalle Istorie fiorentine di Machiavelli, sceneggiando l'episodio della congiura che nel 1478 i membri della nobile famiglia dei Pazzi ordirono per rovesciare il dominio dei Medici su Firenze.
Nel testo alfieriano il ruolo di protagonista è affidato a Raimondo de' Pazzi, marito di Bianca, sorella di Lorenzo e Giuliano de' Medici: l'azione si conclude con il fallimento della congiura, nonostante l'uccisione di Giuliano, e con la morte di Raimondo, suicida pur di non finire nelle mani di Lorenzo.
