This book is devoted to boxes decorated with historical figures in pastiglia, originated within the culture of the Renaissance courts and learned environments of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, and that feature themes centred on Heroism and Love, classical mythology and a particular form of Eroticism.

They narrate Petrarch's Triumphs, the heroic acts of Gaius Mucius Scćvola, Marcus Curtius and Marcus Atilius Regulus, the heroines Lucretia, Judith and Dido, and also female nudes, offering artists an opportunity to depict female nudity in times of strict Church control.
Extremely fragile, they are works of an art unjustly deemed minor in the period of artistic fervour and remarkable passion for classical antiquity that was the Italian Renaissance.
