Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Beatrice Rosso Spatafora, countess of Sclafani and Lady of Caltavuturo, first married Carlo Luna, earl of Caltabellotta. After obtaining the annulment of thismarriage on the grounds of the impotentia coeundi of the husband and receivingdispensation from the impediment of consanguinity, she then married her formerbrother-in-law Sigismondo Luna. Through the events related to the double wedding,this essay helps reconstruct the history of the Luna family, focussing specificallyon the branch which settled in Sicily at the end of the fourteenth century,about which little is known.
