Alessandro de’ Medici

PORTRAIT ILLUSTRATION: MELIANGE

A story and garment that portrayed a strong individual who is aware of their 
uniqueness and heritage.
I got my inspiration from the de’ Medici family of 
Florence. A wealthy white family during the Italian Renaissance. The Duke of Florence, 
Alessandro de’ Medici was called Il Moro, a “somewhat” derogative way to call someone from North African descent.
