Summary expansion
The funeral represented a grandiose gesture of humble devotion by the Medici family, officially vassals to the Spanish crown, and was attended by foreign ambassadors, the papal nunzio, and members of the Medici court. Mass was celebrated by an organizer of the ceremony, the archbishop of Pisa and the oration was delivered by Marcello Adriani. Philip II died in the Escorial on Sept. 13, 1598, but the news took weeks to reach Florence, and not until Oct. 6 did Ferdinando I de' Medici order his superintendent of fortresses, Donato dell'Antella, to plan a memorial service. Ludovico Cardi, a collaborator of Buontalenti, known as Cigoli (1559-1614), was appointed to supervise the temporary decorations. He hung black drapes and canvases painted in grisaille depicting the Spanish king's coat of arms, mourning figures, skeletons bearing scythes, and inside placed personifications of Africa and Asia, Europe and America, closer to the king who had ruled them. The nave arcade was also decorated with life-size painting of skeletons
