In an extraordinary and honoured goldsmith’s workshop,
many things marvelled the world.
In the Florence of Lorenzo the Magnificent,
Antonio and Piero del Pollaiuolo were much praised brothers,
excellent in drawing, painting and carving.
And we are women, as you can see, beautiful and happy young ladies,
among gold, silver and nice embroideries.
Now what’s the worth of our beauty? Long live love and kindness.
