Agniolo Ricci was the choreographer of the ballet. Giulio Parigi designed the amphitheater, the floats and the costumes. Impressions of the etchings were issued with Andrea Salvadori's description of the festivities Gverra d'amore (Firenze : Stamperia di Z. Pignoni, 1615), and with Lettera al Sig. Alberico Cibo (In Pisa : Appresso Giouanni Fontani, 1615); The four prints depict the horse ballet and tournament Guerra d'amore, dedicated to the Archduchess of Austria Maria Maddalena and performed in Piazza Santa Croce, Florence, on February 12, 1616 [1615 in "stile fiorentino"]; Prints [1] and [2] (cf.
