Researcher: Luke Bancroft
Luke is a PhD candidate at Monash University,
Melbourne. His research is focused on the
religio-cultural history of Florence in the period
1419 to 1443 specifically the impact of the
residences of popes Martin V and Eugenius IV in the
city. His chosen object, the Marzocco, was created
by Donatello in 1420 for the stairwell of the papal
apartments and served as a daily reminder of
Republican might.
