Piccarda Bueri (1368–1433) was an Italian noblewoman of the Renaissance.

Life[edit]

She was the daughter of Edoardo Bueri, a member of a family of ancient lineage from Florence with economic interests in other cities; the family was in fact in Verona in the first half of the fourteenth century when she was born. Back in Florence she was married to the young banker Giovanni di Bicci de' Medici in 1386.[1]

She was known for her beauty, but her husband was known for being ugly. The marriage brought respectability to Giovanni and their children, since he was not of noble descent. Just before he died, he asked her to take care of their children. She was buried with him after her death in the Old Sacristy of San Lorenzo.[2]

Carlo Marsuppini wrote a eulogy in which he sang her praises, in which he compared the love between Piccarda and Giovanni with that of famous couples from antiquity.[3] In it, he compared her with Penelope, Artemisia II of Caria, Julia Caesaris and Porcia Catonis.
