Ilaria Andreoli presented a lecture in June last year on the Tensho Embassy, tilted “Italy 1585: Four Samurai and their Gifts”. Has anyone heard of it? The link to the article below provides a video of her presentation, which was held at the Villa I Tatti in Florence. Unfortunately, no subtitles accompany it.

The Yomiuri reports today that a painting has been discovered in a private collection in Italy which is believed to depict Itô Mansio (1570?-1612), one of the Japanese who traveled to Europe on the Tenshô mission. The painting is believed to be by Domenico Tintoretto, son of the famous Renaissance painter Jacobo Tintoretto.
