Alessandra Macinghi Strozzi. Lettere Di Una Madre (7", EP). Istituto Internazionale Del Disco. Alessandra Macinghi Strozzi (1406 – March 2, 1471) was an elite Florentine woman from a political merchant family in the 15th century. Alessandra is best known for her letters, chronicling her fight to stubbornly preserve her family's property and position in Medicean Florence. Overcoming economic hardship and political strife, she raised her sons to be successful merchants and bankers. Alessandra was born into the Macinghi family, a newly elite merchant patriciate family. The Macinghi family gained success as bankers and wool manufacturers and were politically engaged throughout Medicean (Medici) rule in Florence. She was born to Filippo di Niccoló Macinghi and Caterina di Bernardo Alberti. Caterina died while Alessandra was still young, and Alessandra’s father remarried to Ginevra di Albertuccio Riscasoli.
Alessandra Strozzi (née Macinghi) (Florence, c. 1406–1471), the widow of a member of the Florentine mercantile patriciate, Matteo di Simone Strozzi (1397–1435), is known to posterity primarily as the author of seventy-three surviving letters dated between 1447 and 1470. All, with the exception of one to Iacopo Strozzi (1404–1461), a cousin of her late husband resident in Bruges, are written to her sons, Filippo (1428–1491, later known as Filippo il Vecchio or The Elder), Lorenzo (1432–1479), and Matteo (1436–1459)

The letters of Alessandra Strozzi provide a vivid and spirited portrayal of life in fifteenth-century Florence. Among the richest autobiographical materials to survive from the Italian Renaissance, the letters reveal a woman who fought stubbornly to preserve her family's property and position in adverse circumstances, and who was an acute observer of Medicean society. Her letters speak of political and social status, of the concept of honor, and of the harshness of life, including the plague and the loss of children
