Medici University Writer’s Lounge at Tullia-4 & Tullia 12-3/4

Tullia d’Aragona

Of course every neighborhood at MU is magical, but for all the “Maria vs Nostra” trash talking we’ve heard it’s worth taking a moment to appreciate Tullia. In addition to wonderful artists, Tullia is home to 3 of MU’s most beloved facilities:

  • KATYPERRYOPOLIS!
  • Life Drawing Studio

The Medici University Tullia neighborhood was named after Tullia d’Aragona (c. 1510–1556) a poet in my father’s court in Florence. When I was just 5 years old Tullia composed Dialogues on the Infinity of Love (1547), a Neo-Platonist assertion of women’s sexual and emotional autonomy within exchanges of romantic love. Who could possibly be a better patron saint for the MU Writer’s Lounge than a poet and thinker as remarkable as Tullia d’Aragona!
