Abstract

Tradition has it that Caradosso Foppa worked for the mints in both Milan and Rome. Until now, documentary proof of this has been lacking. A document in the Rome archives proves that this was true. Upon the death of Ulrich Fugger (1510), his heirs sought to renegotiate the agreement that existed between their family and Caradosso. Jacob Fugger agreed that Caradosso could continue to direct the mint, but only if he were willing to reimburse to the family half the real cost of the "furnishings and provisions for the functioning of the said mint."
