The Machiavellian Origins of the Name Machiavelli

‘Machiavellian’ according to the Oxford Dictionary means, ‘the employment of cunning and duplicity in statecraft or in general conduct’. It derives from the name, Niccolò Machiavelli, author of ‘The Prince’.
But did you know the origins of the actual name ‘Machiavelli’ comes from ‘evil nails’ of Christ’s passion?
This is just one of the amazing things we have learned reading Count Niccolò Capponi’s new book, ‘An Unlikely Prince: The life and times of Machiavelli’ (available for purchase from the Artviva Store).
All the Artviva staff are enthralled with the book!
Count Niccolò Capponi will be at the Artviva Festival most Friday evenings. For more information and to book in attendance, please see the following link You can email or call Italy number +39 055 264 5033 to confirm your places!
