Mattingly Prize Winner Announced

Every year Brill, the editorial board of Diplomatica, and the New Diplomatic History Network award a prize for an article of excellence and originality on the subject of diplomatic society or culture, broadly defined. 

The recipient of the prize for Volume 4 (2022) is Bradley J. Cavallo for his article in Vol. 4, Issue 1: Cosimo I de’ Medici’s Dissimulation of Diplomacy in the Guardaroba Nuova. The prize committee noted: ‘Cavallo’s article is an erudite and thought-provoking discussion of the complex positionality of portraiture in diplomatic gift-giving, through his study of the Guardaroba Nuova in Palazzo Vecchio, Florence. The committee was impressed by the depth of his intellectual engagement based on a wide range of literature, making this a thought piece’.
