Abstract

The article traces vicissitudes and journeys, which involve the Spanish jester Don Geronimo Fonati through several sovereign states of the Italian peninsula, the southern Netherlands, France and Spain in a chronological arc of almost thirty years; a period in which he is officially at the service of the Gonzagas family and Duke Vincenzo I in particular. A foul-mouthed entertainer and an impenitent gambler, don Geronimo was made sign of a certain credit in the major courts of Europe because of his privileged relation with the lords of Mantua until his sudden fall into disgrace, imprisonment and final set- aside.
