CANTO VIII 

 

 Sigismundo and Gemisthus in Gozzoli's pageant, Adoration of the Magi, Paazzo Medici Riccardi

Sigismondo on horseback, at the very left of Benozzo Gozzoli's fresco, Procession of the Magi. Florence: Palazzo Medici Riccardi.
(Gemisthus Plethon, with white beard and blue cap in the group of followers).

No one has claimed that the Malatesta Cantos are obscure. They are openly volitionist, establishing, I think clearly, the effect of the factive personality, Sigismundo, an entire man.
