If you were a script writer for "The Borgias", what would you say?
Here is an opportunity for you to do just that. Create a scene and put in the characters that you wish to showcase...then give them a voice with your words. Perhaps you would like to have Vanozza tell Rodrigo what you really think....or perhaps you might have Cesare tell Lucrezia to "Run!" instead of pronouncing them married. Here is the place to let your imaginations run wild! You can either add to one of the converstions already started, or you can begin one of your own.
