The route On the 23th of December the converted Queen Christina of Sweden was officially welcomed by the pope in Rome. Three days afterwards an impressive procession accompanied her from the Vatican Palace towards Palazzo Farnese, where she would take her more permanent residence. People gathered in the streets and an infinit number of lights illuminated the route. Upon arrival on Piazza Farnese, four bonfires around the fountains lit up the scene and torches attached to the palazzo illuminated the temporary façade that had been built in honour of the guest. From Piazza San Pietro towards Palazzo Farnese: estimated route _detail Falda map Arrival on Piazza Farnese You can see this temporary façade on the (incomplete) drawing by Carlo Rainaldi.

Celebrations for the 1637Election of Ferdinand IIIas King of the RomansSarah Lampe, Leiden University Fireworks on Piazza di Spagna This etching shows a moment of the magnificent fireworks held on Piazza di Spagna in Rome in February 1637. The Spanish ambassador to the Vatican in Rome, Manual de Moura, organized an eight-day long festival to celebrate the election of Ferdinand III as King of the Romans. The highlight of the festival were the great fireworks. What you see on the left is a square-shaped tower bursting into fireworks and revealing a round- shaped tower. Subsequently, this tower likewise burst into flames revealing an equestrian statue of Ferdinand III. With the help of some ‘occulte machine’ (secret machinery) the statue was then brought from the square into the palace of the ambassador. The image is part of a series of etchings illustrating the fireworks on Piazza di Spagna published in a Festival Book shortly after the event. You can see the series below. Read from left to right, the sequence of events appears almost like a film. ! !Festival BookIn the early modern period, festival books were frequently published to record events likeelections, weddings, and births. To the right, you see the first page of the festival book aboutthe events on Piazza di Spagna. On several pages, the author describes the course of theevents and does the honor to the newly elected king Ferdinand and also to Spain. Books likethis one were a good means to promote the influence and authority of the host of suchcelebrations.The election of Ferdinand was also celebrated at other sites in Rome. It was an appreciatedoccasion for persons of the political life in the city, such as the Spanish ambassador, todemonstrate status and power in the fragile net of political relationships in the town at thetime.Primary Source: Festival Book, Descripcion de las fiestas que el S[eño]r Marques de CastelRodrigo Embaxador de España celebró en esta corte ala nueva del election de Ferdinando III deAustria Rey de Romanos, C.33.l.2, London, British Library. !
